Avoid bill shock

The cold temperatures cause many of us to use more electricity, natural gas, wood, propane and/ or oil to stay warm. That means higher energy bills. That may mean higher electric bills due to increased usage, especially if your home is all electric.

Winter Weather Equals Peak Demand

January’s winter weather made its impact on SEMO Electric Cooperative’s system as cold temperatures drove electricity demand higher. At 6:50 a.m., January 8, members combined to set the 2014-2015 winter peak of nearly 75 megawatts (a megawatt is equal to one million watts) of electricity demand. This compares to a peak demand of 76.5 megawatts at 6:15 p.m., January 6, 2014, during the Polar Vortex.
