AC ELECTRIC: HOT WEATHER = RECORD ENERGY — USE IN JULY

Atlantic City Electric officials are warning of higher-than-usual summer energy bills, citing electricity use is up 20 percent among its residential customers from this same time last year.
The intense hot temperatures this summer have increased electricity use,” said Charlie Wimberg, Atlantic City Electric Region Vice President. “As a result, customer’s air conditioners, fans and other cooling appliances must run constantly in order to maintain satisfactory cooling requirements. Unfortunately, higher electricity usage equates to increased monthly energy bills.”
Wimberg said the company regularly encourages customers to reduce their energy use to save on their monthly bill. It does this through many communication channels, such as the company website, social media, news releases, customer newsletters, bill messages and bill insertions.
“We recognize that the high energy bills that stem from summer heat waves can create a financial hardship for our customers.  This is why we continue to provide them with ways to reduce their energy use to save on their bill,” Wimberg said.
He added that customers who struggle to pay their electricity bills should contact the company’s Customer Care center at 1-800-642-3780 for information on financial assistance or to arrange a flexible payment plan.
