Investing in lower carbon and long-term affordability
We know you value the safe, reliable electricity that is vital to keep your business running, and we're proud to be your trusted energy-solutions partner today – and in the future.
To fulfill our commitment to you, we are investing in the production of more clean, green energy, driving reliability with the modernization of our plants and electric grid and making it easier and faster for customers to do business with us – when and where they want.
We are proud to be able to say that our rates have remained stable since our last rate request took effect in 2013. Since then, we have delivered on a disciplined, well-planned strategy that has improved reliability, increased overall customer satisfaction and kept bills low. In addition, we have reduced carbon emissions by 50 percent since 2000. These operational and financial benefits show our long-term approach is what positions us well for success.
Continuous improvements are necessary to keep delivering these benefits over time – by modernizing our plants and making them more efficient, we can continue to keep customers' bills low and more predictable as well as reduce carbon emissions further.
Commercial and industrial customers would see increases of between 13 percent and 17 percent.
It is too early to know the specific impacts of how our proposed rate change will affect our commercial and industrial customers. We will file our proposed rate increase with the PSC this spring, when we expect to have more details available on how it may affect your business.
New rates would take effect in January 2022.
We are dedicated to giving back to the community, which is why we offer customers more energy-efficiency programs than any other electric utility in the state, helping to reduce energy consumption, saving customers money and helping the environment. Here are some ways we can help you manage your energy usage and spending:
We are focused on being an energy-solutions partner that cares for the community. We understand that customers may be facing unexpected financial hardships due to the coronavirus pandemic and we are here to help.
We are proud to partner with non-profit organizations who provide assistance to those needing a helping hand, including during the pandemic. Should you need support, we offer assistance programs as well as flexible payment arrangements.
