Commercial Water Rates#

2021 Rate Changeshighlight_off
  • Electric: 2.3%-3.9% increase based on cost-of-service model updates (varies by rate class).
  • Water: 2% increase to help with fire-related water quality impacts and watershed health costs.
  • Wastewater: No rate increase.
  • Stormwater: No rate increase.

Commercial customers experience a seasonal increase in rates. The volume charge is 25% greater during the six lawn-watering months (May - October) than in the other months (November - April).

Recent changes to Utilities' Water Supply Requirements will impact how commercial customers are billed when they exceed their annual allotment. Effective Jan. 1, 2020, Excess Water Use surcharges are collected at a rate of $10.39 per 1,000 gallons in excess of assigned allotments.
