The Weather DOES Affect Your Bill

As the outside temperature changes, it's important to remember that the weather does affect your bill!  In addition, you usually pay for electricity 4-6 weeks after use.  Be sure to look at the timeframe your most recent bill covers - the previous reading date through the current reading date.  

Monthly electric bills can increase by over $100 per device by using:

  • Portable electric heaters
  • Engine block heaters
  • Heat tapes or heat lamps
  • Livestock water de-icers
  • ​Air conditioning units
  • Pool pumps

If you use electric baseboard heat or have a heat pump at your home, your bills will also increase during the cold winter temperatures.  Conversely, if you have central air or a heat pump, warmer temperatures will increase your electric consumption.

Please use your electricity wisely!
