Rates

Many utilities publish their rates, sometimes called tariffs. Claverack has two different rate structures for homes and farms, the regular residential rate and the Time-of-Use (TOU) rate. The TOU rate costs are based on when the electricity is used, with on and off-peak pricing structures.

Your bill is comprised of three parts. The cost of service charge is what the cooperative charges to make electricity available to members and to send a monthly bill. This is a monthly charge, regardless of how much electricity is used.

The retail rate (the total rate members pay) is made up of generation charges and distribution charges.  These charges are explained in detail on the back of your billing statement.
