Value of Electricity

While the cost of most goods and services has increased significantly over the years, electricity remains a relative bargain. You may be surprised by the value you receive for your energy dollar.


The average homeowner uses about $5 of electricity per day. That is less than the cost of a fast-food meal to keep your lights on, your home at a comfortable temperature, your food fresh and your devices running. Think of electricity as an employee you’re paying pennies an hour to cook your food, wash your clothes and clean your dishes.


The way people use electricity has changed over the years, and so has the way electric cooperatives provide it. But what hasn't changed is the commitment of these utilities to provide you with the best possible product at the lowest cost.
