What to expect on your September electric bill


After an unusually rainy August, September was mostly dry and hot, which will likely result in higher electricity usage for CoServ Members.

September 2021 was 5.8 degrees warmer on average than the same month last year. One day reached 100 degrees and there were six nights where the temperature stayed above 75 degrees. As a result, air conditioner use increased by about 37 percent in September 2021 compared to the same month last year.

North Texas received nearly 5 inches of rain in August but received less than a quarter of an inch in September. That’s about 2.5 inches less than normal.

CoServ Members should expect electricity usage to be higher than the same period in 2020.

One possible caveat would be if more people were working from home or doing school from home because of COVID-19 last year but they aren’t in the home during the day anymore. That could result in reduced energy consumption during the day for September’s bill.
