Rate Summary

Safe. Reliable. Low-cost. 

Residential electricity rates per kWh (or per unit of energy) are the same today as they were on January 1, 2013. Team SEMO works hard to control costs and seek best practices to save you money. 

Over time, we make incremental adjustments to the fixed or basic charge called the grid availability charge (GAC). It is a flat fee designed to recover a portion of the cost of delivering electric energy to all members.The GAC is billed by the day to match the number of meter reading days in the billing period. The grid charge is reflective of the investment in poles, wires, transformers, and equipment that it takes to provide you with electric service. It takes just as much equipment to deliver one kilowatt-hour as it does 1,000 kilowatt-hours.
