Eau Claire (WQOW) – People are breaking out the winter gear and turning on those home heaters, after several areas experienced snow flurries Thursday.

Last year, Xcel Energy said customers turned up the heat a little higher for a colder-than-normal winter season.

Xcel’s heating season is between November and March. On average, Xcel Energy officials said last year, customers spent $605 during the winter season. This year, that number is anticipated to drop.

“This year, if we have a normal winter, our customers can expect to pay about four percent less than they did on their heating bills last year,” said Chris Ouellette, spokesperson for Xcel Energy.

The average customer would then pay about $580 for the five-month heating season. That, of course, is subject to Mother Nature.
