WHY IS MY BILL SO HIGH

Have you ever truly looked at your electric bill?

Most users only look for the amount that is due. Very few people truly understand why they have a light bill, the factors that drive that bill, and how to bring it down.  There are many factors that contribute to the high costs of your electric bill. Miscellaneous charges from your utility provider, annual rate increases, and lack of efficiency in your home or business are just a few of those factors.

Your utility provider is probably charging you different rates at different times based on your energy consumption. Do you think they charge you more or less during the times that you REALLY use electricity? They also charge you more per kWh the more energy you consume. In most consumer situations you pay less for buying more but not with energy. There is also a built in fuel charge that directly correlates with your kWh usage. Now one might say,”my home is all electric so why am I being charged for fuel”. If you’ve never said it, take a look at your bill and see how much extra you are paying above and beyond your energy usage and then say it!

Annual rate increases from your utility company can also rake you over the coals. In the last 20 years, the average cost of electricity has increased by as much as 50% and is expected to double again in the next 20 years. As the volatile oil industry fluctuates, you can be certain that you will pay the price through higher energy costs. A great way to protect your home and lock in your energy rates is to transition to clean, renewable solar energy. This protects you from the skyrocketing rate increases that happen almost annually and reduces your carbon footprint for your kids and mine.

Now we can’t blame everything on the utility companies. You have a right and a responsibility to ensure that your home is as energy efficient as it can be. 80% of the Energy Evaluations that we perform at ProChoice Solar result in a failing grade based on the homes energy consumption and waste. There are tons of affordable products on the market that can increase the value of your home, decrease your monthly energy consumption (in some cases as much as 100%), and make your home completely energy efficient. The three main areas of your home that you want to focus on throughout your homes life is the Attic and proper insulation, your homes Air Conditioner and duct-work, and the water heating needs of your home. These three areas make up as much as 80% of your total electric bill. Quick Question….when’s the last time you drained your hot water heater?

With summer quickly approaching it makes great sense to take advantage of the complimentary Energy Evaluation that ProChoice Solar provides to our customers. It could save you tens of thousands of dollars over the life of your home. And let’s face it, no one really wants to pay more for electricity then they have to. Now is the perfect time to “Go GREEN” and take a stand to protect and preserve our Earth. It’s the only one we have!
