Many customers don’t realize how fast their everyday appliances can add to the cost of their monthly utility bill. This Appliance Electricity Usage chart will show you just how much these luxuries can add to your bill.
Other factors that may cause high electricity bills can include poor insulation, broken thermostats on water heaters, and poor ventilation. PUD 1 offers free home energy audits. To schedule a free energy audit, or for additional information, contact PUD 1’s Energy Services Representative at (360) 877-5249.
The Community Action Council of Lewis, Mason & Thurston Counties has a weatherization program for qualifying low-income customers who need an energy inspection and improvements made, such as insulation, incidental repairs, air sealing, etc. To see if you qualify, read their brochure.
