Save Energy! Lower Demand!

Due to warm temperatures and high energy demand, The City of Dover Electric Department is requesting its customers VOLUNTARILY reduce electric use TODAY July 26, 2016 from 3:00pm to 6:00pm. There is nothing wrong with the electric grid; we’re just trying to take every avenue to reduce costs for customers.   Your participation helps lower our community wide electric use which reduces electricity costs.  

 You can help by taking simple steps such as:
