Albany Water Gas & Light officials are offering advice as the summer temperatures jump to keep down bill costs.

WG&L officials say you should keep your thermostat at 78 degrees. The company also reiterated that in extreme heat they won't cut off your electricity even if you haven't paid your bill.

"If the heat index is going to make us feel like we are at 100 then we don't do any cut-offs," said Laurie Farkas.
"The danger in that is your bill is still due on time."

If your service is set to be discontinued, it can be disconnected the first day the heat index isn't expected to reach 100.
