Faced with increasing demand for electricity because of hot weather, SDG&E is offering a 75-cent per kilowatt hour credit to its customers on Saturday.
Temperatures and humidity in La Mesa are expected to be in the high 80s Saturday while relative humidity may peak around 90 percent, according to the National Weather Service.
SDG&E said Friday there are adequate power resources to meet the demand, but residential customers can help reduce the strain by cutting their electricity use Saturday between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. Customers will earn a credit of $0.75 per kilowatt hour saved.
The utility offered these tips to help save energy at home:
-- Raise your central A/C’s thermostat setting four to six degrees.
-- Run major appliances before 11 a.m. or after 6 p.m.
