With winter just around the corner, there are steps you can take to lessen the household budget impact of the high-use season while making your home more energy efficient and comfortable. MTE recently introduced tools to help lower power bills by reducing use through awareness of what affects winter-time electric demand. It’s all part of an effort aimed at enabling members to manage their use and bills, rather than the other way around.
Utilize myMTE app enhancements
The myMTE app is a self-service option available to all members, allowing them to view and report outages, see use, pay bills and more. MTE recently rolled out new app enhancements to give you even more control of your energy use.
Using these new features, members can now see how their home’s energy efficiency compares to similar homes, get relevant energy-saving tips and look at a detailed breakdown of energy use. For example, you can view how much energy is used for heating and cooling, lighting, appliances and more.
With this information at hand, members can make changes to their personal energy habits and consumption, schedule free home energy audits and save money on their electricity bills. For more information, visit mte.com/myMTE.
Choose the energy plan best for you
This program allows members to choose an energy plan that works best for them. As an MTE member, you have choices when it comes to billing. Depending on your needs and lifestyle, you can select an energy plan that works best, including NiteFlex and Green. Many members choose the Levelized option for more consistent bill totals through the colder months.
