Residential Electric Rates

This rate is for customers who use electricity for the primary purpose of operating a household. All new or remodeled and/or rewired residential units must be individually metered. Multi-unit facilities providing care to elderly or disabled persons may be master metered in accordance with State law (§ 116J.27 Subd. 8).

The billing for the electrical services component is made up of two parts:

The customer charge (a fixed minimum amount each month)

The energy usage charge (per kWh usage)

The customer charge is a fixed rate that applies each month even if there is no energy usage.
