The new platform of online services for Kiamichi Electric members is a doorway to knowledge, efficiency and convenience—and it's all about you.


Visit the portal for variety of payment and account services, or use it to answer questions such as


How much more electricity do I use when it’s 30 degrees outside?


What day of the week do I use the most electricity?


What hour of the day do I tend to use the most electricity?


Use the portal to study your usage hourly, daily or monthly. You will notice begin to notice usage patterns associated with your daily habits and behaviors.


If you've ever wondered how much electricity you really save by making small changes in your behavior, now you will have the answers. Monitor your usage and see what happens when you:


• Turn your thermostat down 4 or 5 degrees.


• Lower your water heater temperature to 120 degrees.


• Turn your heating and/or cooling systems off for an hour.


View your usage data the next day to see how it compares to the day before. It will silence the cynic in you, and make you appreciate all those reminders from mom to turn out the lights.


Another nifty feature allows you to overlay your energy usage with details on weather conditions during the same period of time. Notice how humidity, wind and other factors affect your bill.


You'll be surprised at what you learn once you enter the portal, and how it can improve your usage habits.
