Sun River Electric Rates

Base Rate

The base rate covers a portion of the fixed costs incurred by the cooperative, such as taxes, insurance, member billing, accounting, etc., to serve a member regardless of the amount of electricity used by that member. 

Demand and Distribution Charges

The demand and distribution charges cover the cost to deliver the electricity to your location.  These charges are used for the operation and maintenance of the electric system.  KWH (kilowatt hours), or usage, refers to your energy consumption during the month.  KW (kilowatts), or demand, reflects the capacity needed to provide the energy to you.

Purchased Power Rider

Purchased power reflects the wholesale cost of power and energy delivered to the member. We pass that charge on, dollar for dollar.

Universal Systems Benefit Program

Universal System Benefits Programs (USBP) is a state-mandated program that requires a utility to spend a minimum amount of funds on certain social programs, such as low income assistance, energy conservation, and renewable resources.  A portion of these expenses are collected through the USBP charge on each member’s bill.
