Rate Information -

Many of the nation’s rural electric cooperatives and other utilities are facing the need to implement a price adjustment due to fluctuating wholesale power costs, weather and consumer conservation. Because Wiregrass Electric Cooperative (WEC) is a not-for-profit utility, we are required to meet financial obligations as well as Rural Utilities Service (RUS) requirements.

To maintain the quality, reliability and integrity of the services WEC provides, it was necessary to adjust prices in to maintain a financially sound company. Rate explanation brochure.

Compare old and new . . .

You can estimate your bill and compare against the old rate using the following equation or the chart below:

NEW RATE 1: ______ kwh x (0.0129 + 0.0963 – 0.0005) + 25.00 x .0620 (tax) = $_________

OLD RATE 1: ______ kwh x (0.075 + 0.042) + 10.50 x .0620 (tax) = $_________

Use the chart below as an example to compare the new redesign compared to the old rate schedule.
