By reading your meter regularly, you can monitor your energy use. The dials on your meter work much like a car odometer with the dial farthest to the right advancing the dials to the left.
"kWh" or kilowatt hour, is 1,000 watt-hours, the standard measurement for electricity consumption. For example, a single 100-watt bulb will use up 1 kWh after 10 hours. At a kWh rate of $0.08, the cost to light that 100-watt bulb for 10 hours would be $0.08. To better understand your electricity usage, check out Energy Tips.
Your current month's kWh usage is calculated by subtracting the previous month's meter read from this month's meter read.
Your current bill statement lists the date that your meter will be read the following month and the date that it was read for your most recent billing cycle.
Simple adjustments to your usage patterns and the installation of energy-efficiency devices can reduce your power service consumption and lower your electric bill. Our Energy Tips will show you how to be a power saver.
Your energy usage will fluctuate with the seasons and can even vary from month to month. Our Budget Billing program eliminates the guesswork of monthly electricity bills by estimating your annual bill and allowing you to pay the same amount every month.
You can connect, transfer or disconnect your power service online. For bill inquiries, credit, collection and non-emergency power outages, call Customer Care at 520-623-7711, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. For other inquiries, visit the Contact Us.
