Our Pricing

We're modernizing the way we serve our customers, while keeping rates almost 30% below the national residential average.

And our conservation programs can help customers use energy wisely and save even more.

Anticipated cost changes

While we’ve selected low-cost options to meet customer needs, they still come with a price. We anticipate that all customers averaged together will see a bill increase of less than 2% a year from 2018 through 2027. The increases will vary by state, year, and size.
