Community

As bitter temperatures await the Ohio Valley this the winter, Appalachian Power is reminding customers they may see an increase in their electric bill as a result. 

But there’s good news for homeowners — AEP is reminding customers there are a few ways to put money back into your pockets this winter.

Air leaks, lack of insulation, and lack of heating system maintenance contribute to wasted electricity. Officials say now is a good time to check for any of these issues. 

The company also offers a variety of payment options to keep you on budget, including one-time payment extension.

“We also have a program called Neighbor to Neighbor, where neighbors can help each other out with what their bills should look like. We also have low-income energy assistance programs,” said Joelle Moray, the external affairs manager for AEP. “We have all sorts of really good things out there to help. We want you to be warm and safe this winter.”
