UES electric customers will pay lower energy costs this summer thanks to reduced fuel and purchased power prices.
Two of the new residential electric pricing plans charge less for energy during most weekday hours and all day on weekends and major holidays.
UES electric customers will be able to choose from several new pricing plans under updated rates approved Aug. 11.
Electric customers can see real-time updates about local electric service interruptions on UES’ new, mobile-friendly outage map.
The Purchased Power and Fuel Adjustment Charge, or PPFAC, is a usage-based charge that reflects changes in the costs UES incurs to fuel its power plants and purchase energy for electric customers. The charge includes only costs that are not already incorporated in base power supply rates. UES passes along these costs without any markup
UES employees will respond quickly and efficiently to power outages with guidance from UES’ emergency response plans.
For safety reasons, an odorant that smells like rotten eggs is added to the natural gas provided by UES.
