The Average Payment Plan can help reduce your high bills in summer and winter and make it easier to manage your monthly bill. The plan allows you to pay a monthly bill on the average cost of your most recent 12-month period. The amount due may vary slightly month to month but if you were signed up for Average Payment, your bill for this month would have only been Label and then every bill in the coming months would be close to that same amount. It’s not too late to sign up for your Label bill.

Feel better, and more comfortable, knowing that you are helping the environment and using energy more efficiently when you use your new hybrid (or dual-fuel) heat pump system.
A heat pump is a device identical to the air conditioner in your home with one big difference. . . it can reverse direction and heat in the winter, as well as provide cooling in the summer. A hybrid heat pump (also known as a ‘dual-fuel’ or ‘add-on’ heat pump) performs the same function as an all-electric heat pump but can use either electricity or gas to provide heat. It combines a traditional gas/oil/propane furnace with an electric heat pump, giving you the best of both options. It automatically switches between fuel sources to run the heat pump when it is the most efficient and cost-effective; which is during the mild and moderate winter temperatures. When the outside temperature drops too low (typically below the 25-30-degree range), your furnace will do most of the heating. This technology allows the system to operate the most efficiently during specific weather conditions, which maximizes comfort and efficiency and minimizes environmental impact.
