You also may use the Site for receiving and paying your utility service bills and to apply for employment. Please feel free to browse the Site.

You may not, however, distribute, modify, transmit, reuse, report or use the contents of the Site, including the text, images, audio and video, for public or commercial purposes without our written permission.

Your access and use of the Site also is subject to the following terms and conditions ("Terms and Conditions") and all applicable laws and regulations.

Terms and conditions

  1. You should assume that everything you see or read on the Site is copyrighted unless otherwise noted and may not be used except as provided in these Terms and Conditions or in the text on the Site without our written permission. We neither warrant nor represent that your use of materials displayed on the Site will not infringe rights of third parties not owned by or affiliated with us.
  2. We Energies makes efforts to ensure the accuracy of information on this site. The output generated by the tools on this site are estimates of costs and/or savings based on your inputs and various sources of regional and national data. Utility and energy cost data is updated regularly, while the weather data used is historic and will not match any particular year. Even though We Energies is continually updating data, energy cost estimates will not exactly match your actual energy bills. In addition, cost and savings estimates are representative of homes and businesses similar to yours and are dependent on many factors, including energy modeling assumptions, weather, changes in your lifestyle/business operations, and the data you provide on your home/facility, equipment and systems. We Energies assumes no legal liability for the information obtained from this Site. We Energies intends to update information listed on the Site where appropriate, but shall not be liable for any inaccuracies, delays or failures to do so and is not obligated to notify users when information has been updated.
  3. Some of the information used for energy analysis is provided by third parties, including state/government agencies and private services. We Energies relies on these parties for the accuracy of their information. We Energies does not endorse any of the companies whose information is represented on this Site or who can be reached from links from this Site.
