Cost of Service Study

Berkeley Electric conducts a "Cost of Service" study every 5-6 years to determine the accuracy of its rates.

This study provides the Board of 'Trustees the necessary information to set "cost-based" rates to fairly reflect the cost to serve each rate class and was completed in October 2016.
Berkeley Electric Cooperative is a not-for-profit electric utility. Therefore, the new rate system is set up to require each member to pay their fair share of the co-op's operating costs ... no more, no less.
