Why does my bill vary?


Your energy bill varies depending on your usage. Charges often rise in the hot summer months when air conditioners, fans and refrigerators work harder. Though your usage may typically be lower in the winter months, additional appliances like space heaters can add to your usage. Remember that electricity is also used to run gas furnaces and electric heat pumps. A change in household size also can increase your energy needs. The addition of electrical equipment like TVs, computers and hot tubs can also add up, as well as the increased use of tools and equipment for home improvement projects.
