Easy bill tip

How alerts can help you keep your electric bill in check.

Have you ever received your electric bill and been surprised at how much energy you used? Suddenly, your budget is in a pinch.

To avoid those surprises, sign up for weekly text or email alerts. It’s an easy way to stay on top of your energy usage and keep your bill in check.

The alert will notify you of how much electricity you’ve used so far this month and give you an estimate of your next bill.

If you see your energy use is up compared to previous months, you can immediately take steps, such as adjusting the heat and turning off lights and electronics, to help rein in your costs — rather than be surprised when the bill arrives.
