Seasonal weather extremes are a way of life throughout the world, and we pay dearly to stay comfortable. Unfortunately, the utility service costs continue to rise year after year. In many cases, we don’t find out that our rates have jumped up until after a major weather event. The utilities are all monopolies, and we don’t have the option of taking out business elsewhere.
After the widespread availability of the Covid-19 vaccine, many of our experts thought that the pandemic was all but over. Now that the delta variant is in the news, our leadership is now once again tightening up standards. It’s a global health crisis unlike any that we have ever experienced, and there seems to be no end in sight.
When it comes to heating and cooling costs, it’s not a question of if they’re going up but how soon and by how much? It all comes down to basic supply and demand. Energy companies can’t produce energy quickly enough and we get stuck with higher prices as they struggle to keep up. That’s why it’s so important to find ways to tighten our belts!
