How the program works:
Most customers pay higher rates in the summer. They are charged $0.046 for the first 500 kilowatt hours of electricity and $0.09 for electricity use over 500 kilowatt hours. This tiered rate can make summer bills much higher, largely if power use is over 830 KWH per month.
CMEP offers a rate of $0.063 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) for all electricity used each month from June-September. The program not only lowers billing rates but also does not charge extra for using more electricity. Rates go back to standard rates October 1.
