What is the Power Cost Adjustment item on my electric bill?

The Cost of Power Adjustment is a separate line item on the Conway Corp electric bill which reflects the increases and decreases in the cost of power from our two percent ownership in generating plants in Arkansas and the power we buy on the wholesale power supply market.

A number of factors affect the cost of power including weather, demand, oil and gas prices, the cost to transport fuel and other items. Like other utilities, Conway Corp establishes retail rates to recover the cost of provided electric service to our customers. These costs include wages, materials, supplies and wholesale power purchases. Our retail rates do not fluctuate and a base power cost of $.0375 per kWh is included in our rates. If our true power costs exceed $.0375, the incremental increase is passed on to our customers.

Conway Corp does not make a profit on this charge. It is a pass through. If our true power costs are less than $.0375 per kWh, customers will see a credit on their bill.

How do I request trees trimmed away from power lines?

As a free service to our customers, Conway Corp contracts several tree trimming companies to keep trees from growing into the power line right-of-way. We also will remove any limbs or branches that are touching or have fallen on our lines. Please contact 501-450-6000 to request tree trimming.

Energy Audits

Conway Corp offers free energy audits to residential and small business customers interested in identifying how much energy their homes and offices consume and what measures may be taken to make them more energy efficient. During the audit process, a Conway Corp certified energy professional will perform a walk-through inspection of the home or business using a variety of techniques and equipment to determine its energy-efficiency level.

The inspection will help you understand the efficiency level of your heating and cooling systems, look at how windows and doors seal, inspect insulation levels, show ways to conserve electricity and help identify leaks in the home or business.

When the audit is complete, your energy professional will provide you with an audit report. This analysis will show problems that may, when corrected, save significant amounts of money over time. To qualify for a free, walk-through energy audit, you must be a Conway Corp electric customer and single-family homeowner or small business owner. Renters must have written permission of the property owner to participate.
