February 2015 was the coldest ever recorded in Kentucky, causing energy use to rise significantly for homes and businesses. With daily temperatures averaging only 13 degrees, just taking a walk outside was a shock to the system.
Last year's low temperatures marked the second consecutive February where Nolin members battled brutal weather. The extreme cold kept many electric meters humming as members used far more energy than normal to heat their homes. No doubt, the resulting electric bill was also a shock for some.
Of course Nolin can’t control Mother Nature, but we can help you offset high winter electric usage and deal with higher than normal electric bills. Nolin is a not-for-profit business owned by our members, making it different from investor-owned utilities that make a profit when their customers consume more power. We serve the best interests of our owner-members by helping you spend less — not more — on electricity.
