KAUKAUNA — Kaukauna Utilities is asking our to reduce energy usage from 3-7 p.m. daily through Thursday because of the forecast hot temperatures.

Before you venture out to enjoy the end of summer, don’t cool an empty house, says the utility. Remember to adjust your thermostat before you leave.

– Close the shades or blinds to keep the house cooler while you’re out.

Turn off lights, fans, and unused electronics when you leave.
