Have you noticed higher Fairport Electric Bills?
Since Fairport has a municipal electric company, electric rates are very attractive when compared to other utilities. However even Fairport’s electric rates have increased over the years. Summer electric rates usually are 3.5 cents to 4 cents per kilowatt hour and winter rates are 5 to 5.5 cents per kilowatt. During the winter season when overall electrical consumption is the highest and an additional PPAC charge is added to your bill. This PPAC charge short for Power Purchase Adjustment Cost is added by Fairport electric when the utility needs to go out on the grid and purchase additional power at market rates. Most of Fairport electrics power comes from a contract for less expensive hydroelectric power, once this allotment is used up by the community the additional PPAC charge kicks in. This adjustment has actually increased bills up to 25% during high demand months. These charges could go even higher if Fairport Electric is forced to go out and buy extra power, so it is beneficial for all to promote energy efficiency.
What can the residents of Fairport do to help keep electric costs under control? Here are two items that will have a big impact on your electrical consumption. If you have an all-electric home with no natural gas “in the street” you should be running a well maintained heat pump to move heat into your home. This system uses typically half the electrical consumption of an electric only furnace. If you have natural gas at your home or in the street you can have a gas furnace installed with a new heat pump. Fairport Electric has a generous rebate of $500.00
available to homeowners whom make the electric to gas furnace conversion. Perinton town code requires a permit for this conversion. We can help you with this process. Many Fairport residents are under the assumption that “Fairport Electric” with and electric furnace is less expensive to run than a gas furnace. That is a false myth. If you are interested in the actual mathematics of these calculations please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will forward this information to you.
Keeping your heating and cooling system maintained not only will you reduce the possibility of an untimely service call but you will save energy too. Many areas of town have a large population of cotton wood trees. The cotton wood that is in the air usually around the first part of June is a big contributor to high energy costs. The cotton wood will be sucked into the condenser coils when the air conditioner is running, eventually blocking the air-flow through these coils. This will cause the air conditioner to loose efficiency and make the components in the air conditioner work extra hard, if left un-maintained the result will be premature failure of the equipment and high electric costs for you. Air filtration on the furnace is another area that needs to be maintained, there are many different filter systems, we can help you make a selection that works best for you. An often overlooked area is the dryer vent. These need to be cleaned on a regular basis, well before you start noticing that it is taking longer and longer to dry the clothes.
