October to April is our usual heating season. This October started out almost 6 °F higher than the normal for the 31 day billing period as compared to last year at this time. A slow cooling trend now has the temperature at 1.24° F lower (the temperate data is from Ephrata).
Bills may be about 4 % higher for this billing date as compared to last year at this time. This is an increase of approximately $2.00-$2.50 for an average home in Grant county.
