Let there be Light


The city of Hulbert recently added more street lights along highway 51 on the east side of town. LREC was happy to help with this project. LREC helped by installing the poles and lights. These lights will make the city of Hulbert safer for vehicle traffic and pedestrians during the evenings. These new lights also add aesthetic appeal to the community of Hulbert. Hulbert plans on adding more Christmas lights and other pole decorations on these poles during the holidays.

“We look forward to this year’s Christmas parade and having more lights downtown Hulbert,” stated Ricky Lee, City of Hulbert employee.


High Temperatures Result in High Electric Bills As temperatures continue to rise throughout our service


area, we are facing another summer of high demand for electricity. As a result, we want our members to understand that they will likely see an increase in their electric bills as a result of the extreme heat. Temperatures in excess of 95 degrees are possible this month.


Increased electricity usage is a direct result of the extreme temperatures and high humidity levels, which forces air conditioners to work harder in residences and businesses. Air conditioning can actually represent up to 50% members’ summer electric bills. We would also like to remind any vacationing members and absentee owners that their bills are not excluded from hot weather usage increases, since air conditioning units and water heaters will continue to operate during their absence. To help with high costs while away from your home, we highly recommend a thermostat setting of 85° in a home that is vacant for several days or longer.


• To help avoid high bills this summer, here are some energy – and money – saving tips to consider this summer:


• Set thermostats at 78° – every degree below this setting could add up to eight percent to your cooling cost.


• Use ceiling fans or portable fans to increase your comfort level with the higher thermostat setting. • Make sure your air return filters are clean.


• Check your air duct system for any gaps or leaks. If any are


found, these should be repaired by a qualified heating and air conditioning contractor.


• Check around doors and windows, caulking and using weather-strips wherever possible.


• Keep sunlight from heating the inside of your home by closing drapes or blinds.


• Avoid indoor activities that add heat to your home – cook outdoors or use the microwave and do laundry early morning or late at night.


As always, we are committed to being here to help you, our members, save energy and money. Call us at 918-772-2526 if you have any questions on saving energy and lowering your electric bill.
