MidAmerican Energy Company is committed to remaining a
low-cost electricity provider, controlling expenses and helping customers save money by using electricity efficiently.
Electricity charges fluctuate between summer and winter pricing. These charges are greater during the summer billing period and we encourage our customers to take steps to budget accordingly. The summer billing period is June through September and the winter billing period is October through May.
MidAmerican Energy’s cost to produce electricity increases in the summer, therefore the price we charge our customers during those months also increases. Many customers with air conditioning also consume more electricity in the summer months. Energy usage could increase during the winter billing period, however most customer bills are lower during the eight months of this period because the energy costs are lower.
