- Home Weatherization Keep wintery drafts out of your home by sealing cracks and gaps. Weather stripping around doors and windows works well when you can see daylight between the frame and the wall or floor. Use caulk to seal around the frames where you see gaps.

- Wake’s Flexible Payment Options We offer “pay-as-you-go” and levelized billing services to help spread out your energy payments instead of having to pay the high costs that extreme weather brings at one time. Statistics indicate that “pay-as-you-go” electricity programs often help lower consumption by 10-12% due to members’ awareness of usage patterns. So, if you’re interested in monitoring and lowering your electricity use, you could benefit from Wake’s PowerUp program.
- SmartHub/Mobile App This app lets you track your energy use from your smart phone to keep heating and energy-related costs in check. This app is free and easy to access from your smartphone or computer.
