Summer Rates Effective May 1



Sun

Summer rates are effective from May through October, and winter rates are billed from November through April. 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 these hot summer days makes the cost of providing power greater at this time of year, and that is reflected in our rate structure.
