Understanding Your Rates

Your rate consists of 3 components: Base + Energy + Transmission

The Base Rate is made up of the Facility Charge and Usage Charge.

Facility Charge – fixed monthly rate that recovers costs associated with customer service, metering, meter reading, billing, and accounting.

Usage Charge – fixed rate based on kWh that recovers costs associated with poles, substations, lines, and equipment needed for delivery.

The Energy Cost Adjustment or Energy Rate is a variable rate charged per kWh to recover costs associated with generation and fuel.

The Transmission Cost Recovery Factor or Transmission Rate is a variable rate charged per kWh to recover the cost of delivering generated power from its source to the utility.
Please use the Residential Bill Calculator to help estimate your monthly electric bill.
