February 1, 2018 High Bill Alert

Below freezing temperatures in January are going to have a dramatic effect on your February 1, 2018 electric bills. Electric heating worked overtime to maintain thermostat levels in homes. Many homes having electric heat use air source heat pump systems. These systems lose capacity during extreme cold and rely on supplemental emergency heat in the form of electric heat strips or coils. We are seeing some electric bills triple over January 1, 2018 bills.

Members who have traditional strip heat units could experience even higher usage.

Heat lamps and electric space heaters will also contribute to higher bills.
