How do you calculate the charges on my bill?

Based on your total usage the residential rate will vary depending first on your primary heat source and then on the associated tier levels. The kilowatt hour (kWh) allowance per tier has a corresponding rate for the summer and winter seasons and is prorated based on a 30-day billing cycle. Additional charges for residential customers are: customer charge, State Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Program Charge and Utility Users Tax.
