Paying Your Electric Bill
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     Your electric bill came today. Do you know how to read it? You should take the time to study it.
 
2     Most bills have some of the same basic information on them. Your name and address should be written correctly. Take the time to make sure, however. Bills also tell you the service period. This is the time period you are paying for. The bill will say something like, "service from 6/15/07 to 7/15/07."
 
3     Your account number will also be written on your bill. It is important to locate it. You don't have to memorize it. But you should copy it onto the check you pay the bill with. This way, the company will give proper credit to your account. If you have a problem with your bill, you will have to tell your account number to the person helping you.
 
4     You get an electric bill to pay for the power you use in your home. Many things run on electricity. Your refrigerator, your washing machine, and your computer all need electricity in order to work. Electric companies have a way to measure how much power you use each month. The unit is called a kilowatt-hour.
 
5     Your bill will show you how many kilowatt-hours you used. It will give the previous reading and the current reading. The difference between them is your total usage for the month. You should make sure the calculation is correct.
