Serving North Texas Since 1937

What to expect on your August bill

July 2022 was one for the record books with average high temperatures of 102.4 degrees and an average daily temperature of 93.9 degrees.

All but two days in July had high temperatures of 99 degrees or higher. The temperature even reached 109 degrees three days in a row.

The higher temperatures meant air conditioners had to work up to 35 percent harder in July 2022 compared to the same period a year ago. As a result, Members should expect July electricity usage to be higher than the same month last year.  

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas set new demand records 11 times this summer, including several in July.

North Texas also didn’t receive a single drop of rain during the month, exacerbating the ongoing drought in the region.
