What's A Facility Charge?
The Facility Charge–built into your monthly billing–is simply the money it takes for us to build and maintain the equipment, lines, poles, substations, and run your cooperative. It is a flat fee–although the fee is different for each billing class; residential, commercial, large power or industrial.
Every four years or so, our board of directors performs a Cost of Service Study to make sure our Facility Charge is indeed covering the bills we incur on your behalf. The Facility Charge is due on an active account even if no kilowatt-hours are used because we still have to maintain the system that could deliver power to that service.
