Winter energy use greatest factor impacting electric bills

TCEC members are fighting the winter chill, which can cause higher energy use and lead to higher electric bills.

“Energy use varies greatly from house to house and member to member,” Chris Purdy, TCEC vice president of Member Solutions, said. “It also varies depending on the time of year. For example, people with all-electric homes or heat pumps will see their electricity use peak in the summer and winter. People with both gas and electric in their home will typically see higher electric use in the summer and higher gas use in the winter.”

Winter Storm Safety Tips

When winter temperatures drop and storms hit, it can be challenging to stay safe and warm. TCEC cares about your safety, and we want you to be prepared.
