The Brownsville Public Utilities Board (BPUB) is asking residents to conserve energy for the rest of the workweek. 

This is due to the high demand from record-setting heat this summer, customers are urged to conserve energy from 2 P.M. to 7 P.M. this Thursday, September 5 and Friday, September 6 to avoid overloading powerlines. 

Electricity can be saved by turning off unnecessary lights and not doing laundry during these hours.
