2021 rate restructure

Beginning in 2021, our commercial customers will transition to a new rate structure. The rate restructure will include:

  • Consistency across all rate classes to make it easier to predict energy costs
  • Changes Time-of-Use to Time-of-Day periods that better aligns with the cost of provided electricity (see clocks below)
  • New non-summer off peak saver rate for low energy prices when energy costs less
  • No peak on weekends and holidays
  • Adjustments to fixed charges including
    •  System Infrastructure Fixed Charge (SIFC)
    • Site Infrastructure Charge (SIC)
    • Summer Peak Demand Charge (SPkW)
