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.
