What are these charges?
System Connection Fee - A fixed rate used by the Co-op to cover the expenses of maintaining the best possible quality of electric service and investing in improvements to our infrastructure. Below are examples of the expense items covered by the Basic Connection Fee:
- Wire, transformers, utility poles, other equipment, and labor needed to build and maintain the electric distribution system
- Keeping pace with increased system investments to improve reliability
- Implementing new technologies to provide increased reliability and operational efficiencies such as the outage management system and advanced metering
- Liability insurance, interest, taxes, and emergency storm restoration
- Outage restoration costs
Energy Charge - The actual charge for the kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy used by a household or business during the billing period.
Power Cost Adjustment (PCA) - Due to the shifting wholesale power costs month-to-month, Sussex Rural Electric Cooperative uses a Power Cost Adjustment to settle wholesale energy collections from its members. The PCA is applicable to all metered kilowatt hours of energy billed under the Cooperative's electric service schedule. The PCA is applied by crediting or debiting the member's monthly bill to recover or refund the difference between estimated and wholesale power costs.
Commercial and contract rates are also available. Please contact us for more information.
