A rate study was completed to determine the appropriate electricity rates for Western members, and the board approved the new rates of trustees in November 2022 to take effect in 2023. A rate study helps identify the needs of the cooperative, promote continuity of financial health, ensure equitable rates among all classes of consumer-members, and determine adequate recovery of future costs.

You will need to know your rate code, which can be found on your bill (a sample bill can be found here). Your rate code will let you know which rate schedule to look at below.
