Why is my bill higher than last month?

Your bill could be higher for a variety of reasons:

  • Your water or electric consumption has probably increased. Check to make sure you do not have any malfunctioning appliances or using any additional heat or cooling in the past few months. For more information, please call our business office at 218-485-4100 to speak with a Customer Service Representative. We also offer to our customers the ability to rent a Kill-A-Watt which is a device you can plug into the wall and plug your appliances into and it will measure their usage.
  • Have you updated your appliances and light bulbs to energy saving ones? You could replace all of those 60- to 100-watt incandescent bulbs for light emitting diode (LED) bulbs that use a fraction of the wattage for the same light dispersal. Change out that old clunker of a washing machine for a new Energy Star rated one. And the best part? Besides all the energy savings, we offer rebates!
  • Additionally, if your payment was received after the bills were calculated, it will not have been applied to your account and therefore not reflect in your current bill total.
