Electricity use in Tulsa is near record levels. Tuesday was the second highest peak demand for power ever at PSO. Spokesman Stan Whiteford says there are a couple of good reasons to try and conserve electricity, it reduces strain on the system and it keeps bills lower.

He says air-conditioning is the thing that accounts for the most energy use, so it’s good to make sure air filters are clean to help keep costs down.
