Electric Cost Adjustments

Electric Cost Adjustment

Your electric rate is adjusted monthly based on the difference between the base cost of purchased power that was used to determine electric rates and the actual cost of purchased power. This increase or decrease is the month's Electric Cost Adjustment (ECA). For example: if the ECA is $0.0022 per kWh and the residential electric rate is $0.08 per kWh, the price per kWh is actually $0.0822 ($0.08 $0.0022).
