Thank you for your patience.
During winter, you will likely see a higher-than-normal bill compared with other months. This is especially true if you heat your home with electric.
We know it's difficult when the amount due is more than expected, and bills will be higher this winter due to higher fuel costs. It costs more today to generate electricity than it did last year because the cost of coal, natural gas and purchased power have all increased due to inflation and the ongoing war in the Ukraine.
We have ways to help.
Please contact our Customer Solutions Center at 800.956.4237 or send us a private message on Facebook to discuss the right payment option for you. Here are some of the options available to customers.

Even if you have lowered your thermostat, extremely cold weather can require your heat pump to change how it operates. When outdoor temperatures fall below 30 degrees, heat pumps need help from less efficient supplemental electric resistance heat to maintain indoor warmth. In extreme cold periods, when heating needs are highest, most of the heat provided comes from the less efficient supplemental electric resistance heat. This is how your bill can increase, even if it seems you haven't done anything differently.
