Expect Higher Usage Due to Weather

Your February 7th bill is for your electric usage January 1-31st.

Although the weather was mild at the end of January, it was much colder at the beginning of the month. Many of our members saw higher than normal bills for December’s usage because of the cold snap that began just after Christmas. Those bitterly cold temperatures continued through the first part of January, and after a small relief, hit us again mid month.

Most winters we don’t see below freezing temperatures that come to stay for so many consecutive days.
