Electricity in 'Extreme' demand

South-east Queenslander's must be loving their air conditioning - according to Energex's website the power demand is currently at Extreme levels (3806MW being used right now!).

Help manage peak demand by ensuring your air conditioner's temperature isn't too cold (minimum of 24 degrees) - or try using it in conjunction with a fan. That way you don't need to have the AC as cold (only need it to cool down to 26-28 degrees) and helps save you money! Or even better, just open the window!
