We Are Roseville - August 18, 2020


August 18, 2020

Energy Conservation

Roseville Electric Utility is urging customers to continue conservation efforts as extreme heat drives electricity demand.

Residents and businesses alike can reduce their energy usage with simple adjustments like bumping thermostats up at least two degrees and turning off unnecessary lighting. Conservation helps lower demand and avoid outages, as well as reduce the duration of an outage.

Everyone should take action to shift energy use to morning and nighttime hours, and conserve as much energy as possible during the late afternoon and evening hours.

During peak hours, residents are asked to:

  • Set air conditioning thermostats to 78 degrees or higher, if health permits.
  • Don’t use major appliances, like the dishwasher or clothes washer/dryer.
  • Turn off unnecessary lights.
  • Close blinds and drapes.
  • Use fans when possible to keep cool.
  • DO NOT charge electric vehicles.
  • Turn off pool pumps.

Roseville Electric is not currently required to participate in rotating outages ordered by the California Independent System Operator (CAISO). If this changes within our service territory, customers will be informed with as much advance notice as possible.

The truth of how we use water will astound you

There’s a common misconception that most of the water we use at home goes toward household activities like showering, washing dishes, and clothes or flushing the toilet. Thing is, most household water is used outside on our landscapes.

Hot, dry summers and triple-digit temperatures have a huge impact on our water use.

Roseville's future housing blueprint needs your input

The City is starting to update the housing blueprint for the City, known as the Housing Element.  The Housing Element considers the City’s needs for housing access, inventory, affordability, and quality. It is a critical part of the City’s efforts to preserve, improve, and develop housing accessible to everyone in our community. 

While some of the City’s housing goals are likely to remain the same, such as enabling the construction of high-quality housing, improving the existing housing stock, and providing new affordable housing opportunities, the City wants to make sure the update enhances the quality of life for all residents and provides opportunities for sustainable and affordable housing.
