While power outages in Roseville are rare, there are steps you can take to help “weather” any storm.
Keep your cell phones charged, some extra cash on hand and your gas tank at least half full.
Plan for batteries and other alternatives to meet your needs when the power goes out.
Review the supplies that are available in case of a power outage. Have flashlights with extra batteries for every household member. Also, have enough nonperishable food and water.
With high winds in the forecast this week, there are simple things you can do to help prevent a storm-related power outage. Make sure to properly store lightweight outdoor furniture and garden accessories and remove landscape debris. This prevents them from being carried away by strong winds and into overhead power lines.

Staying comfortable while saving energy is important no matter the season. But with the holidays right around the corner, what better time than now to save energy and money.
Here are some simple, cool-weather conservation tips:
Keep vents open and air flowing. Closing doors and room vents puts extra strain on the central heating system.
Open drapes and shades on sunny days to let in heat from the sun; close them at night and on cloudy days.
And, set your thermostat to 68 degrees and lower it to 55 degrees at night or when you’re away from home. Remember that if you lower your thermostat by two degrees during the winter, you can save about 10% on the operating cost of your heater.
