Reduction to Power Cost Adjustment

Bill Savings Created In Power Cost Adjustment Reduction

A decrease in the Power Cost Adjustment means our members will pay $5.30 less for every 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) used.

The new, lower Power Cost Adjustment effective January 1st, will be reflected in the Energy Supply Service portion of your bill.

We remain committed to providing electric service at the lowest reasonable cost possible while continuing to modernize our infrastructure, resulting in improved safety and reliability for all members.
