The City of Leesburg is helping electric customers to beat the peak by saving energy and reducing monthly power bills. 

New electric utility upgrades soon will provide each city customer with more information about their energy usage. That can help them to curb demands during peak periods, when it costs the most for many utilities to provide electricity. 

Leesburg will host a public meeting to explain the program for customers in the Silver Lake area at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22, in the Magnolia Room at Lake-Sumter Community College, 9501 U.S. Highway 441 in Leesburg.
