We have seen an increase in calls from our customers who don’t know why their bills went up so much between November and December. The increase is quite normal between those two months. Weather is going to have the biggest impact on your electric bill. The weather impact can lower bills during mild weather and will certainly increase bills during summer and winter months. The November to December temperature difference is generally significant and results in higher December bills. This year was no different. In Paris, the average temperature was 13 degrees colder in December compared to November. If you have electric heat and your December bill did not increase, you should be surprised. The average temperature for the month of November was 50 degrees. December’s average was 37 degrees. The temperature dipped below 40 degrees only seventeen times in November compared to twenty-eight times in December. Even more telling is the fact that temperatures dipped into the teens NINE nights in December (one night in single digits) and ZERO nights in November. We hope this weather data helps provide some understanding. Please feel free to call customer service for more information on your specific bill. We are here to serve you. We also have a full time Energy Advisor on staff that stands ready to make an in-home visit to assist with energy saving measures.

BPU employees came together this month to collect food for the Weekend Backpack Programs in both the city and county. Students in both the PSSD and HCSS will benefit from these donations. A group of BPU employees are shown delivering items to the PSSD. This is another example of how the BPU gives back to the Paris/Henry County community!

The broken water main has been repaired and the water is back to full service. Customers in the Brentwood, Peachtree, and Sherwood area could experience some air in the lines. Crews are working on getting the air off the lines at this time.

A water main is broken at Brentwood and Peachtree. BPU crews are mobilizing equipment to the site at this time. The repair is expected to take from 2-4 hours. Sherwood St is likely to be without water for a period of time during the repair. Other residents in the area could experience air in their water lines. We appreciate the understanding of those customers who are being affected by the main break.
