Summer months are often the highest activity months for electric utilities, and a local cooperative is one of many providers that are willing to work with customers to make sure that big bills don’t overburden their customers. Jean Van Wyk, Communications Coordinator with Pella Cooperative Electric says they offer both short and long-term assistance to customers struggling to pay their utility bills. She adds that if the concern is addressed ahead of time, they will help customers to keep their power connected and their air conditioners running during these hot summer months.
