Across the country and around the world, energy costs are rising. Right now, the increased cost of natural gas is creating the largest impact on customers’ electric bills. America’s electric companies know that our customers count on us every day for the energy they need. We are working to keep bills as low as possible and to help customers understand what goes into their bill, why bills are increasing, and what actions they can take. Electric companies also are working with customers to help them reduce their bills by better managing their energy use and are providing direct assistance to customers in need.

Access to affordable energy is a matter of health and safety.
