The cold weather blast experienced across South Texas in late December and early January will likely impact members even after the sun comes out. This is because the colder temperatures outside mean higher electric use inside the house, and members are likely to see the higher use result in a higher bill since electricity is billed based on how many kWh you use. "Even if nothing in the home changes, when the temperature outside drops the home's heating system has to work harder to maintain the temperature," according to Michael Harkins, Energy Efficiency Specialist for the cooperative.
