Storm Alert

With the fourth Nor’easter in nearly three weeks right on our door step, we have hundreds of crews positioned across the region should the storm impact our system. Remember to keep safety a priority – before, during and after the storm. Be sure to have a supply of bottled drinking water and canned food handy. Power problems can sometimes interrupt public water supply systems or disable well pumps. It is also a good idea to check on elderly family members, neighbors and others who may need assistance during an outage period.

Your bill doesn’t have to change with the seasons. Take advantage of our programs and solutions to greater control your energy use and monthly bills, year round.

This year weather has been 26% colder than average across Rhode Island.* With this winter shaping up to be one of the coldest in years,  higher energy bills are expected. We can help you plan for increased costs and minimize them when possible. Some quick steps you can take today include:

  • Lower your thermostat when you’re asleep or away. A 6-9 degree adjustment can save up to 10 percent.
  • Drop the temperature on your water heater. Set it to 120 degrees to save energy and prevent burns.
  • Clear areas in front of vents from furniture. Blocked vents require up to 25% more energy to distribute air.
  • Seal any air leaks. Caulk and add weather stripping around windows and doors.
  • Change the filter on your heating system regularly. A dirty filter will decrease air flow and energy-efficiency.
