Doing the ‘Electric Shift’
IT’S the “Electric Shift” time
again. As we have in the
past, we are asking for your
help again in keeping power
costs as low as possible.
Many of you are familiar with the phrase, Electric Shift. But for those of
you who aren’t, the Electric
Shift is easy and, with a litRick L. Eichelberger
tle practice, allows you to
General Manager & CEO use electricity more wisely.
During hot, humid days of
summer, electric use tends to run
extremely high. This makes the cost of
generation to meet this need also high.
Our future power costs are partially
based on how much power we buy on
hot, sticky weekdays between the hours
of 1 and 6 p.m. This time period is
referred to as the “High Five” hours.
On weekdays or a series of weekdays
when temperatures rise to around 90
degrees and come with high humidity,
Electric Shift messages will be broadcasted on WSKE-FM 104.3 and 1040 AM, as
well as WJAC-TV 6 (Johnstown) during
weather segments of the noon news. A
message may also be placed on our website, www.newenterpriserec.com, during
peak hours.
How can you help? Below are a few
steps you can take to help prevent future
power costs from increasing:
k Set your air conditioners to 78 degrees
or use fans instead.
k Close your curtains and blinds to keep
things cooler inside your home.
k Operate washers, dryers, dishwashers, showers, and other major appliances early in the morning or late in
the evening.
k Minimize the number of times you
must open your refrigerator or freezer.
k Cook with an outdoor grill or a
microwave oven.
k Turn off any non-essential lights.
k Run pool pumps at night.
We need the involvement of many
people to control power costs for everyone. As we work together, we can make
a difference.
So remember, do the Electric Shift
from June 1 to Sept. 30 between 1 and
6 p.m. on hot, humid days. Your help is
greatly appreciated. l
June co-op calendar

Benjamin Franklin
When you hear the name of Benjamin Franklin, what do you think of? Like most people, you would think of the famous 1752
kite experiment with lightning, which was conducted to verify a link between electricity and lighting.
However, did you also know he was a writer, inventor, diplomat, businessman, musician, scientist, humorist, civic leader,
international celebrity and, of course, a genius?
Here are a few highlights from the life of Benjamin Franklin:
˝ 1717 — During his youth, Franklin invents swimming fins to be worn on
the hands.
˝ 1718 — Franklin, then 12 years old, is apprenticed to his brother, James,
to learn the printer’s trade.
˝ 1729 — Franklin and a partner buy a newspaper, the Pennsylvania
Gazette. Under Franklin’s leadership, the Pennsylvania Gazette becomes
one of the major newspapers for the colonies. A hundred years after
Franklin’s death, Cyrus Curtis purchased the Pennsylvania Gazette and
turned it into the Saturday Evening Post.
˝ 1732 — Franklin’s highly popular Poor Richard: An Almanack is first
printed; it continues annually for an additional 26 years.
˝ 1736 — Franklin organizes the first volunteer firefighting organization,
the Union Fire Company. Members pay annual dues and are charged
fines for violating the company’s rules. By 1743, the company collects
enough money through fines to purchase a fire engine of its own.
“A penny saved is a penny earned”
˝ 1744 — Franklin publishes a pamphlet to sell the “Pennsylvania Fire-Place,” a new stove design he created.
˝ 1748 — Franklin retires from printing to pursue interests in electricity and other scientific experiments.
˝ 1752 — Franklin undertakes his kite experiment, proving the link between electricity and lightning.
˝ 1752 - The Philadelphia Contributionship, the first mutual fire insurance company in America, is founded by Franklin and
other members of the Union Fire Company.
˝ 1753 — Franklin is appointed as deputy postmaster general for the colonies after serving as appointed postmaster in
Philadelphia in 1737.
˝ 1755 — After working more than five years to help establish the Pennsylvania Hospital to provide medical care for the
poor and mentally ill of Philadelphia, Franklin participates in laying the cornerstone for the hospital on May 28.
˝ 1762 — Franklin’s glass armonica, which he invented while living in England, becomes a popular instrument throughout
Europe.
˝ 1787 — At the age of 81, Franklin is the senior delegate at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. His final speech
to the convention urges unanimous support for the new nation. In signing the constitution, Franklin became the only
founding father to sign all of the country’s major founding documents — the Declaration of Independence, the Treaty of
Paris with England and the United States Constitution.
