Prepay Service Rate - 16, 35
The Energy Charge will be equal to the rate/class of service being provided. The Base Charge will be equal to the rate/class of service provided. The monthly Base Charge will be annualized then divided by 365 to determine the daily billing charge.
Net-Metering Service - 70, 72, 73, 74, 75, 77, 78
Net-meter energy is the total electrical energy supplied to CCEC by a qualifying net-metering facility subtracted from the total amount of energy supplied from CCEC to the net-metering facility over a given billing period. If the amount of energy generated is greater than the amount of energy delivered, the difference in kilowatt-hours shall be defined as excess energy. Excess energy shall be banked and used to offset future consumption.
The Member-generator will be billed the Base Charge (kW) equal to the rate class of the net-metered service.
The Member-generator will be billed the Demand Charge (kW) equal to the rate class of the net-metered service. No demand charge credits will be given to the Member-generator for energy generated by the Member-generator
What is the Base Charge?
This is the most common question we receive regarding our rates. In short, it’s a fair way to divide our costs. Our operating costs can be put into two buckets of costs: fixed and variable.
Fixed costs stay the same regardless of how much energy a member uses. They include maintenance of the lines, billing and administrative costs. Variable costs are the cost of power and energy we need to purchase to meet our members changing requirements. Our rates are designed so some of our fixed costs are collected from all members whether they use a little energy or a lot.
If we eliminated or reduced the Base Charge our energy rates would have to go up accordingly. Members who live here full time our used a large amount of energy would be subsidizing our members who are part-time residents or who used less.
Member Responsibility to Maintain Equipment
In order to receive electrical service, the property owner is responsible for maintaining their electrical service in safe operating condition. This helpful infographic shows the equipment commonly owned by the homeowner and the electric utility.
If your electric service is not in compliance with the National Electric Code, safety standards and local building codes CCEC may be required to deny service until the violation is brought in to compliance.
As a condition of service, you must provide reasonable access, free of vegetation and other obstructions, to CCEC equipment such as your meter. If your meter or other CCEC equipment is damaged please notify us immediately.
