WHICH RATE IS RIGHT FOR YOUR BUSINESS?
Commercial customers using between 32,000 and 45,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity per year can choose between the Small General (Rate 10) and General (Rate 11) tariff.
- Switching from Rate 10 to Rate 11 could provide savings if you use more than 32,000 kWh per year and do not have large equipment such as compressors or refrigeration units. (Link to Frequently Asked Questions)
- Switching from Rate 11 to Rate 10 may be the best option to save money if your business has an uneven electricity use pattern – often referred to as a low “load factor”. (Link to Frequently Asked Questions)
To help determine which rate is best for your business, just enter your previous year’s electricity usage into the calculator. You will see how much your past energy usage would cost at current prices under both rate classes.
It’s important to note, that changes in how much electricity you use – and how much you use at any one time – will vary your actual result.
You can access your past electricity usage data by logging onto MyAccount.
