The first week of January was the coldest on record.
And because of that, chances are you had the heat turned up pretty high in your home – if for no other reason to keep your pipes from freezing.
According to Dominion Energy, their customers used more energy during that week than any other on record, and set a record for demand on January 6.
And with all of that usage comes a higher power bill at the end of the cycle.
Think you may have problems paying that higher bill? According to Dominion, they’re willing to work out payment options for those that need them.
“We offer payment extensions, long-term payment plans, and bill payment assistance to help get them through a rough spot. All our customers need to do is go onto their online account for help or call 866-DOM-HELP,” stated a release.
