Bills and Rates
Not-for-profit public power utilities offer competitive electricity rates to customers. On average, residential public power customers pay 13 percent less than customers of privately owned utilities. APPA helps public power utilities stay informed about rate design trends that address new technologies and meet customer expectations. Members can get rate design resources through our Public Power Forward initiative. Public power utility, state/regional association, joint action agency, cooperative associate, and federal agency members can join the Rate Design Interest Group (RDIG).
