WMECo Suggests Energy Efficiency as First Line of Defense Against this Winter’s Rising Rates

Northeast Utilities, October 15, 2014

With the expected rise in electricity prices this winter, WMECo wants customers to know there are several options available to reduce the amount of energy they use to help keep bills in check. The company also offers budget billing, as well as savings programs specifically designed for income-eligible customers.

“We’re concerned about the effect a surge in the cost of electricity will have on our customers,” said Penni Conner, Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Officer at Northeast Utilities, WMECo’s parent company. “Our energy efficiency programs are designed to help folks reduce their usage, tighten-up their homes, and ensure every energy dollar is spent effectively.”

Because now is the best time to begin taking action to prepare for a January price increase, WMECo is proactively reaching out to customers with helpful suggestions.

Making efficiency improvements around the home can dramatically lower energy use. Simple steps like turning down the thermostat; caulking drafty doors and windows; making sure heating vents aren’t blocked; and switching to energy efficient light bulbs, will all help save money.
