Standard Offer Service rate update

Total residential Standard Offer Service (SOS) rate for March: $0.093134 per kilowatt-hour (kWh).

  • Winter Residential Energy Charge: $0.0931 per kWh 
  • March Residential Power Cost Adjustment (PCA): $0.000034 per kWh 

SMECO must revise its base energy rate if the PCA for three consecutive months is 5 percent more or less than the base energy rate. Since SMECO’s PCA for March was 0.04 percent of the current average annual base energy charge and that is under the trigger level of 5 percent level, SMECO’s base energy rate will be unchanged.
