Scammers may provide you with a phony account routing number for you to use to pay your utility bills, receive a credit, or obtain federal assistance. In exchange for personal information that can be used for identity theft, you may get a payment account number. If the number is entered during an online transaction, it may appear that your bill is paid, but no funds are actually paid to the utility, the account balance remains due, and you may be charged a returned payment fee by your utility.

Do you know what to do in the event of a downed line on your home/yard?

Contact us and the authorities. Stay away from the line, and close to an exit and as far away from the point of contact as possible. Bunny-hop away only if your dwelling catches fire and poses breathing or burning risks to you and your family.

Scammers posing as utility workers may appear unannounced at your front door offering a free energy audit, efficiency inspection, water quality or pressure testing, or some other service. These unsolicited intruders may be pitching unnecessary expensive products or attempting to steal items from you. Unless your utility company has notified you in advance, or you initiated a request for such a service, do not let them into your home or business.

"Electricity generation is projected to rise by 79% between 2018 and 2050 as a result of increased electricity consumption in all end-use sectors. Electricity should remain the main source of energy that buildings consume. Electricity use is projected to rise in the residential and commercial sectors as populations rise, commercial services expand and standards of living increase in non-OECD economies. This should lead to increased demand for appliances and personal equipment. Electricity use is expected to rise in the transportation sector as more plug-in electric vehicles start operating and as rail transportation expands the use of electricity." - U.S. Energy Information Administration

Home Energy Savings Project: Insulate and Air Seal Floors Over Unconditioned Garages
This is an easy project with utility savings that will depend on energy cost, R-value increase, and the airtightness of a newly insulated floor compared to the existing one. It will take between four and eight hours and will cost between 60¢ and $1.00 per square foot for R-30 batts!

Stay safe out there linemen, the wind is picking up. Electric still out south of Hartsville. 🌚💨
Thanks for a great evening! My granddaughter loved her hotdog and “horsey” ride. Proud that our family’s been members for over 50 years.
I'd so love to have a job at Bartholomew County REMC!!!!! For me it would be a HUGE honor seeing how my Dad done 41 years and retired from there! I'm even named after him plus have his work ethic!!!!!!!!!
No power in Amberley. Any word on what's happening or when it will be back on?
Thank you BCREMC for the great fish sandwiches for lunch today from everyone at MSW they were delicious
We live in the vicinity of 250 West & 700 South in Columbus. Our power has been off for approx. one hour. Does anyone at REMC know when it is predicted to come back on ?
Thank you for taking the time to shut off the grid Friday. I am happy the winter blend electric has been replaced with the summer blend electric. I can already tell a big difference. My lights appear to be more crisp and bright, while my refrigerator is running quieter. Bartholomew county REMC, seriously though, you guys rock and I am thankful you got our outage taken care of fast. Line men thank you. And all workers of electric control thank you.
Power out at Shaffer lake?
Thank you to REMC service guys for getting East Ridge Manors power restored in less than an hour at 12-1pm on Thanksgiving. May the squirrel RIP.
I was all prepared to ride out the night without power. I saw your trucks all day long and knew you’d work till everything was up and running. Power is back on and I just want to give you all a shout out! As a retired police officer I understand what it means to work thru the nasty weather until the job is done. Thank you for your dedication to service! God bless you and keep you safe! ♥️
We are so grateful for your hard work every day and especially the days with such harsh conditions!
Thank you Bartholomew County REMC. Our electricity was just restored on Deaver Rd and we really appreciate it!
