Spring weather has a way of attracting pests — like unscrupulous home-improvement contractors who can’t wait to “help” you tune up your air conditioner, patch your roof or repave your driveway. If you need to hire a contractor for any of those jobs, choose one who has a state license to do the work, who is bonded and insured, and who has done good work at the home of a friend or neigh- bor who is happy to recommend him. Do not hire someone who knocks on your door without an appointment.


If you need an electrician or air conditioning/heating tech, ask your electric cooperative, your neighbors or your co-workers for some names. Check that the person has a valid and current state license. Choose someone whose company name is painted on his truck and who has official letterhead and business cards that give the company’s name, address, phone number and state license num- ber.

Canadian Valley Electric would be at least a year away. Well that year has come and gone. However due mostly to the good weather year (for electric lines – no large scale damages) and the increased sales of electricity due to the weather extremes, we can still project that any rate increase action by Canadian Valley would likely still be at least a year away. Canadian Valley Electric’s part of the overall electric bill that pays for the poles, wires, transformers and people to keep the system going only accounts for a little over 20% of the electric bill. The other 80% goes to build, maintain and run the gen- erators to make electricity and for the transmission grid to bring the bulk electricity to our service area.


The major drivers of the price of electricity in the future will be the price of natural gas and the new regulations on coal plant emissions. Power plant owners will have to add millions of dollars of investment to coal plants to meet new regulations. After adding these dollars, the plants will produce no additional electric energy, likely less. Natural gas is providing an increasing share of the fuel for power plants. Today the price of natural gas has fallen to levels below the cost of replacement. We are told that our country has an abundance of natural gas available, perhaps a 200 year supply. In a new natural gas fired power plant, any increase in the price of Natural gas of $1.00 increases the cost of the electricity about ¾ of a cent. Produces say that they need about 3 times today’s price for natural gas to produce from the abundant supply but that is so much more difficult and expensive to develop. Not tomorrow, but in the not so distant future, energy will be taking an even bigger bite out of everyone’s pocket book. 915151402


The time to begin preparing is today with good energy decisions now and at every opportunity. When we buy that new appliance for our home, we are committing to the monthly energy consumption it requires for its future useful life.
