How to Read Your Bill
We buy the energy you use in the competitive, wholesale supply market. We pass our costs on to you, without making a profit—what we pay, you pay. Energy supply costs vary and are affected by factors such as the weather, demand, and market trends.
If you purchase energy from an Energy Service Company, you’ll see your cost savings in the unregulated supply portion of your bill.
Delivery rates are set by state regulatory agencies and aren’t subject to market changes. This revenue lets us maintain and upgrade our electric and gas distribution systems and keep our service safe and reliable.
TaxesLocal, state, and federal taxes are applied to both the supply and delivery portions of your energy bill.
