In 2016, rates for typical four-service residential, commercial and industrial customers will decrease compared with 2015. And, the way bills are itemized will be streamlined.
The first bill you receive in 2016 may feel overwhelming, though. That's because most customer billing cycles will span December 2015 into January 2016. As a result, you'll see 2015 rates and structure and 2016 rates and structure itemized on your first bill of the year. In short:
- Decreased prices for natural gas and coal equate to lower overall costs, while still allowing for some needed system upgrades.
- Fuel-related charges that were previously separated are now combined.
