Several factors can cause your bill to be higher than normal:
- Winter: Heating your home or other buildings and plugging in vehicles at night use more energy.
- Summer: Air conditioning or are watering your lawn more often use more energy.
- Other reasons for a sudden increase in consumption include water heater elements going bad or well pumps running all the time.
Flathead Electric offers a Budget Billing option which allows members to level their bill amounts throughout the year to help with budgeting. Under this plan, your last twelve month’s usage is averaged to determine your monthly bill amount.
