Beware of phone scam

April 21, 2014

We want to alert our members of a scam call. The call will originate from the 818 area code. They want your credit card number to pay your bill or they will disconnect your account. No phone call from Menard Electric will come from the 818 area code. You can always call the office to verify if it was Menard Electric employee calling.

Unusually Cold Temperatures Affect Your Bill

February 7, 2014

Originally published Jan 20 and updated Feb 7.

Wow-we just keep seeing those bitterly cold temperatures and windchill values this winter. It has certainly been an unusually cold season for us.

It was the 4th coldest December on record in the last 30 years and was colder than the previous year by about 30-40 percent. January didn't fair any better and February isn't starting off well either.

We escaped major outages from the ice predicted to hit last Friday night/Saturday morning Jan. 31-Feb. 1

But now we face significant snow falls predicted for Tuesday afternoon/Wednesday morning Feb. 4-5 as well as later in the week.
