BENTON, Ark. (KTHV) -- Dan Smith, SCADA technician with the City of Benton, wants the public to be aware that the city is under a Level Three energy alert.
This means that there is a risk of the power grid overloading because people run a lot of electricity during this time due to the heat.
To combat this, the city is urging people to conserve electricity as much as possible.
Remember to turn off the lights when you leave the room, and turn of the air conditioning if you leave the home.
