Next spring, we plan on changing the look of your electric bill and simplifying it to better serve you. You’ll note several changes for the new year including:
A new graph that shows month by month kilowatt hour use, so you can compare this year’s monthly use with last year’s use. You’ll be able to gauge how you are doing compared to the previous year.
In January, we will be rolling the Wholesale Power Cost Adjustment (PCA) into the wholesale rate. For many years we’ve had the PCA line on your electric bills. In years past that line item was placed there to reflect the ups and downs of the cost of wholesale power we purchase from our Generation and Transmission Utilities. That PCA has remained fairly steady at about .04000 cents/kwh (with the exception of summer high demand months) so we are simply rolling it into the wholesale rate for purchased power.
For most months we anticipate you will see the PCA at 0.00000 cents/kwh. Summer months may vary.
What does that mean?
The amount of your bill will remain the same, just the PCA line item will change. (see the 2019 bill example and the 2020 sample)
