The revenue requirements to support the 2021 budget require increasing monthly charges for electric service by 3.0%. Additionally, a reduction in pricing is proposed for the voluntary Green Energy program, reducing the charge per kWh from 1.9 cents per kWh to 1.6 cents per kWh in 2021. A 2% increase for water services is proposed to help offset mitigation costs related to the Cameron Peak Fire. Upon adoption, both rates would be effective January 1, 2021.
