An average residential customer should expect a total utility bill inflation of 2% per year. The rate structure is changing from a two part rate to a three or four part rate. The implementation of time-of-use demand charge will lead to a declining avoidable kWh rate (currently $0.0870/kWh going down to $0.05/kWh over the next few years). An example of a residential energy only avoidable kWh charge is expected to cost $23,000 over 25 years for 14,000 kWh per year.

There will be a $1.30 per day service availability charge in addition to any charges for net monthly energy purchased, outdoor lights, Time-of-use or other services purchased from the Co-op. In addition there is a minimum $125 one time reimbursement of cost for the utility installation of a net meter device and a $50 annual reimbursement of cost for a safety check of the automatic disconnect switch.
