Every month you are billed for the electricity that you use by Powell Valley Electric Cooperative. Most people get their bills in the mail each month.
When is the last time you took a look at your bill? There is a lot of information on the bill that is of interest to you, a cooperative member. There is a page on the Powell Valley website that explains many of the sections of your bill. This can be found at: pve.coop/account/understand-your-bill.
Besides listing the amount of electricity you used in the last month, there is a table which compares your electricity use every month for the past 13 months. The daily cost of electricity for current month, previous month, and same period last year are listed. Of course, at different times of the year your bill will be higher or lower, depending on air conditioning and what type of heat you use.
The bill also tells you about payment options and what happens if you do not pay your bill on time. The bill also requests that you notify Powell Valley if your address or phone number changes. This is very important.
There are other numbers on the bill that talk about rate, cycle, and multiplier used in determining your bill. Do you know what these words mean and how it affects your bill?
PVEC Member Voices is holding a workshop on Tuesday, May 14 at 2 pm at the Community/Senior Center in Sneedville to talk about your power bill. There is no charge to attend. You do not need to bring your power bill.
Topics will include: information on your Powell Valley bill; how Powell Valley bills for electricity; and ways to reduce your power bill.
Everyone needs to learn more about our electric cooperative. For more information, go to pve.coop.
