There have been several recent price adjustments that resulted in overall rate increases for customers. Specifics regarding the adjustments can be found on our Monthly Customer Communications page listed under State Specific Information. In addition, in November, and to this point in December, average temperatures have been colder than normal resulting in increased energy use. These factors are the main driver to customers seeing higher recent bills.

There are several low- to no-cost measures you can take now to help reduce overall energy demand during the winter season and to offset possible increased costs.

  • Lower your thermostat
  • Turn down your water heater
  • Check your home for air leaks around windows and doors and seal leaks with caulk or weather stripping
  • Replace dirty furnace filters

Your safety is our number one priority. Please don’t set your thermostat to a temperature that is too low and unsafe for you and your family, and do not use outdoor heaters indoors, such as propane heaters. Also, don’t attempt to heat your home with a gas oven, stove, or grill.

In addition to many cost saving measures, we also offer Balanced Billing to levelize your payments throughout the year as well as bill assistance. If you need assistance to maintain a comfortable home, please click here for information on the many bill assistance options for our customers.
