As winter approaches, we can help you minimize the seasonal spike in your energy bill. Electric heating systems work harder and use more energy to keep you warm when outside temperatures dip below freezing. We can’t control the weather, but here are four ways to manage monthly costs as the temperatures drop:
1. Sign up for Budget Billing today. Avoid seasonal peaks by dividing payments evenly over the entire year. Because you’ll know your regular payment amount, it will be easier to stay within your energy budget – even in the hottest or coldest months.
2. Find tips for saving. Explore year-round tips to help you save money and energy throughout your home by visiting at pepco.com/energytips.
3. Ask about Flexible Payment Arrangements. If you’re having difficulty keeping your payment up-to-date, we offer individually tailored payment installment plans. Call us at 202-833-7500 before your bill becomes unmanageable.
4. Apply for Energy Assistance Programs. If you’re struggling to pay your electric bill, there are state and local programs that may be able to help you. These programs offer millions of dollars to eligible residents. Visit pepco.com/energyassistance for more information.
