New Residential Rates
By Timothy J. Power, CEO

Last October DS&O asked Cooperative Finance Corporation (CFC) to begin a cost of service study, which included a revenue requirements assessment, cost of service study, and eventually rate design recommendations.

The Cost of Service Study (CSS), which looked at each rate class, showed a combined 4% deficit in revenue.  The Board of Directors (Board) decided to focus on the Residential rate classes this year, since these classes bring in approximately 70% of the cooperative’s revenue.  It is our plan to look at the Commercial rates in 2017.  The CSS showed that all Residential rate classes had a monthly cost to serve close to $50.00.  This is at least $22.50 more than we currently charge for any of our Residential rate classes.
