February doles out some of the highest annual energy costs.

We cannot change the cold weather. But here are some ideas to make changes in your home that can save energy:

 

Local PA state police have  been receiving reports of phone-scam ring calls. Please be advised that if you receive a phone call from someone posing as Central Electric Cooperative threatening to "shut off your electric" unless paid in "MoneyPak" or some other form of untraceable payment method, be sure to call our office at 800-521-0570 to verify that we made a call to you concerning your account.

Central Electric Cooperative (CEC)  rebate program is expanding in January 2018. We are now offering first-time rebates for Energy Star heat pumps, electric clothes dryers, and mini compact refrigerators that promote efficiency while improving our environment.

 

Trees are the number one cause of power outages and service interruptions. As part of Central Electric Cooperative's (CEC's) ongoing effort to improve system reliability, contracted line clearing crews are working on circuits originating from Prospect, Coaltown and Fredericksburg substations in Butler and parts of Armstrong Counties. 

Electric space heaters are a good way to provide extra heat for rooms that seem to stay cold or for someone is always chilly. 

Please remember that they are single largest contributor to high winter electric bills and a leading cause of home fires. 

 

Cost Calculation 

All space heaters are rated in watts found on a tag located on the back of each unit. Most heaters are 1,500 watts.
