1. Season Reasons: In winter, cold snaps in some months can increase your bill by more than 10% as your heating increases. Because the sun sets earlier, you may use more lighting than you do in other seasons. Also, the type of clothing we wear is usually heavier in winter requiring longer electric dryer time. In cold weather, many people move inside and use more energy for lighting, cooking and entertainment. Even the types of food we cook in winter tend to be different and require longer cooking times.

In summer, the children are home. The hot, humid weather calls for more air conditioning and dehumidifier use. This alone can increase cooling costs by 10% or more. You may also use more energy for cooking outdoors, cleaning, home improvement projects and heating swimming pools.


2. Billing Periods: A typical billing period is between 29 and 31 days, but holidays may make your billing period up to 35 days long. A difference of 5 days on your bill can increase your bill by 17 percent.


3. Holidays: During holidays, you might use more energy for cooking, cleaning, lighting and heating for company.

4. If You Have Electric Heat: Consumption and therefore, the rate at which you are using electricity, adds up quickly—resulting in a higher bill during periods of cold weather.

One free Home Energy Audit is offered to all residential customers. The RMLP contracts with Energy New England (“ENE”) and pays for the cost of the energy audit. The homeowner is responsible for paying any and all energy saving upgrades.

If you would like to request a free Energy Audit of your residence, the Energy New England Representative at the number below can coordinate this service on your behalf. The Energy Audit consists of a certified Energy Advisor who will visit your home and compile a comprehensive energy evaluation report. This report will identify ways to enhance both the energy efficiency and comfort of your home, and potentially reduce energy costs. The homeowner at his/her sole discretion will determine which, if any, energy conservation improvements they desire.

If you would like more information on energy conservation services available to you, please contact the ENE Energy Hotline at 1‐888‐772‐4242.
