Beginning January 2019, the minimum bill charge for residential and commercial accounts will increase by $2 per month. The minimum bill charge is located in the “Energy and Distribution” line item on your bill, along with your kWh usage. This minimum charge increase reflects the true cost it takes to get power to you, as it recovers much of the fixed costs of providing service.
The mimimum bill will rise from $32 to $34 for residential accounts and from $42 to $44 for prepay accounts. General service commercial accounts will see an increase in the base rate from $34.50 to $36.50. “The cost to deliver electric service is a cost that every member shares,” said Ray Grinberg, CEO. “Raising the minimum bill allows us to cover those fixed costs of providing service without tying fixed cost charges to how many kWh you use.”
