General Service Price Plan
The energy charge of the General Service Price Plan (E-36) uses a declining block structure, which means the price per kilowatt-hour (kWh) declines as consumption increases relative to electric demand (kilowatts used).
A "load factor block" refers to the part of the price structure where the energy charge is dependent on the amount of energy (kWh) used relative to a customer's demand (kW). A load factor block encourages customers to keep their energy usage as stable as possible — avoiding demands that are extremely high relative to total energy usage. This promotes efficient use and operation of generation resources.
