Energy Efficiency Charge Rates

The Energy Efficiency Utility (EEU) Program is funded by a volumetric charge on customers' bills, known as the Energy Efficiency Charge (EEC). The EEC rates apply to electric service and natural gas service.

EEC rates are expressed in terms related to customers' consumption. For example, customers pay based on the number of kWh used in a given month and, for customers served under a demand rate, customers pay based on the number of kW that they are billed for each month.

The EEC rates are set by the Commission each year using the process and methodology set forth in Commission Rule 5.300.


On November 20, 2017, the Commission issued an Order establishing the 2018 EEC rates for all electric customers.
