ComEd schedules extra workers

ComEd has scheduled extra work crews to monitor any system problems. The company says it's prepared to meet heavy power demand.

ComEd is also offering some energy saving tips.

  • Thermostats should be kept at a constant 75-to-78 degrees-- lowering the setting will not cool the house faster.
  • Window air conditioners should be kept on the shady side of the house.
  • Keep shades and blinds closed to block out the sun.
