Residential electricity usage temporarily increased by six percent after the Governor’s social distancing orders were expanded on March 19, when most schools, bars, restaurants and other businesses closed.

Considering there were no drastic temperature variations, the increased usage is likely due to more people working from home and spending more time indoors.

Since April 2, usage has been on a downward trend.

“Whether there was a spike in usage or not, the last thing anyone needs to worry about right now is how to pay their power bill. We know that after a sufficient supply of food and water, electricity is the number one thing you need to maintain some sense of normalcy,” General Manager and Chief Executive Officer Reg Rudolph said.
