General Service Price Plan

The energy charge of the General Service Price Plan (E-36) uses stretcher blocks, which means the price per kilowatt-hour (kWh) declines as kilowatt-hour consumption increases relative to electric demand (kilowatts used).

This encourages customers to keep their energy usage as stable or as flat as possible — avoiding spiking demand. This promotes efficient use and operation of generation resources.

Prices

The following per kilowatt hour (kWh) charges apply to the E-36 plan:

Monthly service charge: $22.08 plus meter charge (CT/PT $17.52 or demand/non-demand $6.75)

Note: The demand charge applies to all kW > 5kW for the maximum demand measured. The overall price will decrease with lower kW demand. The higher the load factor, the lower the price per kWh.
