July 8th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – The extreme heat appears to have contributed to the death of an Iowa man shortly after an Omaha car accident last month. 48-year-old Paul Tamayo, of Council Bluffs, had a core body temperature of 110 degrees when he died on June 27th.  Douglas County, NE, officials have ruled that Tamayo’s high body heat was likely the cause of his death, but the ruling won’t be final until toxicology tests are completed.
 
Tamayo, who worked as a roofer, crashed his car into a dirt mound in an Omaha construction zone. Then police found him collapsed about a half-mile away from the vehicle. The National Weather Service says the temperature was 101 about the time of the accident.

News

July 6th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Interstate Power and Light Co. (IPL), an Alliant Energy company, announced today (Friday), that it will cycle air conditioners for all participating Iowa customers. Weather conditions are such that from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. today customers enrolled in the Appliance Cycling program will have their air conditioner cycled in 15-minute intervals to reduce overall energy usage.

Participating residential customers have a small control switch placed on or near their central air conditioner. Today, Alliant Energy will send a signal to all switches in the state. The control switch will cycle the outdoor cooling unit off and on every 15 minutes. The furnace fan will continue to circulate the cooler, drier air already in the home. 

Alliant Energy pays each participating residential customer $8 per month from June through September – whether the air conditioner is cycled or not. A similar program for electric water heaters is also included in today’s event. Customers enrolled in that program receive a $2 per month discount during the same June through September time period.
