Tiered Rate Plan

Tiered Rate Plan

In the Tiered Rate Plan (Schedule D), you begin each billing period at the Tier 1 rate, which has the lowest price per kilowatt hour (kWh). If you use more energy than the baseline allocation for your region, your rate climbs to Tier 2. A state-mandated High Usage Charge may also apply.

The Tiered Rate Plan is a more traditional billing plan where the best way to keep energy costs low is to limit your total energy consumption.

To see which tier you are currently in:

  1. Log into My Account.
  2. Select the “View Recent Usage” button.
  3. Select “How is this calculated?” which is below your “Projected Next Bill” total.
