On Tuesday, RG&E hit a new 2012 record for energy usage. They used 95 percent of their energy resources.
"It's been atrocious, we have been able to get away with the RV that you can see behind me, but still the air conditioning is running 24 hours a day," said Alex Antonelli of Irondequoit.
"It's been the hottest summer I can remember. I think it's been in the 90s so many days, I remember summers where it was not even 90 at all," said Samanatha Herbert of Irondequoit.
For some people to the beat the heat air conditoning is a must. Thankfully, RG&E says it has the power that customers need.
"We spend a lot of time and money and effort in making sure that happens. We put a lot of work into our system, before days like this, to make sure that it can handle the load," said Dan Hucko of RG&E.
Samantha's family doesn't use air conditioning on a regular basis, so this hot streak won't have a big impact on their bills.
"We aren't big on turning it on, but it's nice to have one, when we have really hot days, so we definitely had it on a lot more than normal," said Herbert.
RG&E has several tips that can help you save money when you use the AC.
"Turn the thermostat up. We would recommend a setting of about 78 degrees for air conditioning. You might want to think about not using your air conditioning and using your fan instead. Close the blinds to keep the sun out of the house," said Hucko.
"We try to maintain it around 75, in the evenings, I'll let it go up to about 77, but during the day we keep it at about 75," said Antonelli.
For people like Alex, who run the AC in hot weather, they aren't worried about what it costs.
"I expect the next bill to be extremely high. Last month's was just about 114 dollars, but this month it should be in the order of what I would guess excess of 200 dollars," said Antonelli.
