Little Miami Local Schools will again this year participate in Duke Energy’s PowerShare program, a demand response program that rewards the district for adjusting energy consumption levels during peak times.

On Thursday, Sept. 6, the district will voluntarily shut down electricity between 3:55 and 5:05 p.m. to comply with our Duke PowerShare agreement.

Students will already be on their way home from school and will not be affected by this outage.

The district will still have phone and Internet service during the outage.

In return for participating in the program, Little Miami can receive up to $64,000 in rebates from Duke Energy for hitting curtailment targets.
