Manager’s Report – January 2018

Colder Temperatures Can Mean Higher Bills

As colder weather sets in and we experience the beauty of winter, I’d like to take one more opportunity to share with you what this weather can mean to your electricity consumption, i.e. PUD bills.

Even though you may not have adjusted your thermostat, your heating system requires more energy to accomplish the same task when the outside air temperature drops. More energy consumed equals a higher bill. Contrary to what some may believe, we do not increase rates in the winter.

Please contact us if you are struggling with your winter electric bills, there are a variety of programs available to help you. We want you to be safe and warm in your homes and businesses.

Best to all and Happy New Year,

Roger Kline
General Manager
