According to The Cadiz Record’s AccuWeather forecasting service, high temperatures fell beneath the 95-degree line on only five days in August, while climbing above 100 degrees 11 times. Pennyrile Electrical Co-op customers may have observed the heat in their August billing after the month-long battle to stay cool.

According to Pennyrile’s Media Relations Officer Brent Gilkey, the average residential customer used 15 percent more kilowatt hours of electricity this August as compared to last. Gilkey added that comparing actual bills between this year and last was a difficult task due to a rate decrease in October 2006, and a fuel cost adjustment this year.

Faced with higher usage and subsequently higher bills, Gilkey said that qualified customers meeting guidelines set by the Federal and State Governments could apply for assistance with their abnormally high utility bills from the Pennyrile Area Development District.
