Winter Rates in Effect November 1



Power Lines


Beginning November 1, your electric energy use will be billed on our winter rates. Winter rates are effective from November through April, and summer rates are billed from May through October. In areas such as ours where summers are hot, the peak demand for electricity occurs during the months when air conditioners are working hard to keep everybody cool. The higher demand for electricity on hot summer days makes the cost of providing power greater during the summer, and that is reflected in our rate structure.
