HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Huntsville Utilities is asking customers to conserve energy and reduce the use of electricity as much as possible until noon Friday.

Utility officials said the reduction is needed to help ensure a continued supply of power to essential services throughout their electrical system.

Utility officials suggest customers postpone the use of non-essential appliances such as dishwashers, dryers, cooking equipment, and by turning off non-essential lights.

In the event of an outage, Huntsville Utilities ask that customers turn off their heating systems and to wait 15 minutes after power has been restored before restarting.
