Winter normally brings higher energy bills and with the recent extended Arctic air blast hitting our area, customers of GL&PS will most likely see a rise in their energy consumption and thus can expect to see significantly higher electric bills coming their way soon. These nightly single-digit cold temperatures has seen TVA break all-time energy peak demand records.
GL&PS is urging customers to control their energy consumption by setting their thermostats back to 68°, making sure all windows and doors are sealed tightly, caulk and weather-strip where needed and reduce unnecessary power consumption in regards to lighting, appliances, and electronics. These smart energy saving habits can help save you money throughout the cold winter season.
In addition, a great way for GL&PS customers to monitor their daily energy consumption is by going online to www.glps.net and downloading the “Smart Hub” app. This app allows customers to manage their total electric account.
