Fall is here which means winter and colder weather are on their way. Appalachian Power offered customers the chance to learn the best way to minimize their electric bills in the winter at an open house on Saturday September 29, 2018.
Phil Moye is the spokesman for AEP, he explained why they put this event on in the fall.
“Cause the winter heating season is coming and of course that is highest energy use time of the year for some people and also the highest bills so we want to help people get prepared for that,” Moye said.
Moye said that they have contractor they work with to help people get their homes ready for the winter season. He also said this is a great chance for customers to have a face to face conversation with a worker about concerns they may have.
“This is just a way to get out here and talk face to face with our customers about any issue they might have whether that’s billing, tree trimming or anything like that. And so we are trying to present information that customers will find useful and will be able to put it into use and save money and reduce their energy use and all that,” Moye said.
Moye said their goal is to help their customers save money.
“What we really hope is that when people come here today that they will have a better idea of ways they can reduce their energy use through energy efficiency and also levelize their bills by using our average monthly payment program,” Moye said.
If you were unable to attend the open house you can visit Appalachian Power or call AEP to get help on how to save money this winter.
