July 25 — Despite a record-breaking heat wave in Central Texas last week, Pedernales Electric Cooperative (PEC) officials said service remained undisrupted.
A peak high energy forecast lasted from July 19 to 23, leading PEC to push out information via social media about conservation methods customers could use to do their part to prevent service blackouts, spokesman Mike Viesca said.

Because high energy costs can impact municipal budgets and the ability to fund essential services, TCAP, as part of its mission, actively promotes affordable energy policies. High energy prices also place a burden on local businesses and home consumers.
