City Utilities in Springfield is asking customers to limit their energy use as they conduct repairs.
In a release Friday morning, Manager Joel Alexander says that crews are conducting repairs due to the severe cold making its way across the Ozarks.
According to the release, officials are asking residents to “conserve usage” for several hours while the repairs are completed.
Alexander recommends turning your thermostat down 2-3 degrees during this time, keep all unnecessary lights and appliances turned off.
He also requests waiting until later Friday afternoon/evening to do laundry or run your dishwasher.
There is no indication as to when the repairs will be completed.
