ANCHORAGE, Alaska - An experiment in energy conservation in Southcentral Alaska shows a 1.5 percent drop in the energy load.

The Anchorage Daily News ( says the two-hour energy conservation effort was intended to find out how much energy could be conserved if there was not enough natural gas to be delivered to the region.

Anchorage Mayor Dan Sullivan says residents of Anchorage, and on the Kenai Peninsula and in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley, were asked to turn down their thermostats, postpone laundry, turn off unnecessary lights and otherwise conserve energy for two hours on Oct. 30.

He says the effort shows that citizens can conserve if there is a shortage.
