As a member of Piedmont Electric, you are able to to take advantage of programs and tools we offer to help maximize your energy efficiency. Our goal has always been to provide safe and reliable power at the lowest cost possible for our members. One of the ways we achieve that goal is by helping you save money on your monthly bill.
Think about when you use power, not just how much you use
During the summer, peak times are in the afternoon when temperatures are highest. The hot weather causes our members to use more energy to keep their homes cool.
This excess use contributes to higher energy costs overall for our cooperative since peak energy is the most expensive type of energy to produce. We encourage our members to decrease energy use during peak times by raising their thermostat up three degrees in the summer and unplugging electronic devices.
