MY BILL EXPLAINED

More Than Just an Invoive

Your electric bill is more than an invoice – it’s a powerful tool for monitoring your energy consumption.

A detailed chart and history graph helps you track current energy use against your usage history. With this information, you can be aware of unanticipated changes in your energy consumption and costs.

If you notice significant discrepancies between you past usage and current usage, you can locate the source of the difference – such as the inefficiency of an aging central heat and air system, water heater, or other major appliance. You may simply need to weatherize your home.

Your power bill helps you take quick action to control your energy costs. For more information please contact us at (402) 336-2803.
