Many Area Residents Are Shocked By High Energy Bills This Month

Many residents across the Commonwealth were in for a surprise when they opened this monthly bill from Dominion Energy, I know I was!  Dominion's Spokeswoman defended the spike, stating that unseasonably low temperatures, combined with heavy use due to folks being stuck inside during the snow and winter breaks led to much higher usage. 

Here are some tips from Dominion to combat rising energy costs:

  • Change your furnace filter once a month. Dirty filters restrict airflow and force your system to work harder

  • Run ceiling fans in reverse to circulate warm air

  • Roll up a towel and cut off drafts along doors and windows

  • Turn down the thermostat or get a smart one that will turn down the temperature when you’re not home. Just one degree lower can save you between 1% and 3%.

Dominion Is working with folks to set up payment plans if you cannot afford your bills.
