We are adding a Demand Reading to your electric bill. There is currently no charge for this reading, but you may be wondering what it's for. Your "demand" increases when many large or power-hungry appliances operate simultaneously. Northwestern REC must have the infrastructure to ensure enough power is available to the members’ home or business to satisfy their current need for immediate electricity. Northwestern REC’s system must be built to supply energy at maximum demand for each member. It is important to remember that demand is not the total amount of energy used; it is the impact of your usage on the system.
