Fort Collins Utilities Rates#
It is Fort Collins Utilities’ rate philosophy that adjustments should be gradual and modest to avoid large increases in any given year.
Small, steady rate increases cover the costs of delivering reliable electric, water, wastewater and stormwater services to our customers now and into the future. Rates provide the funding needed for ongoing maintenance, infrastructure improvements and construction projects throughout our community.
- Electric: 2% increase due to a projected wholesale cost increase.
- Water: No rate increase.
- Wastewater: No rate increase.
- Stormwater: No rate increase
Fort Collins Utilities regularly reviews its rates and makes adjustments to reflect the costs of providing reliable and quality electric, water, wastewater and stormwater services.
We realize rate increases impact our customers, and we work hard to control costs and operate as efficiently as possible. Typically, City Council approves rates by ordinance in November and the new rates go into effect in January, with February bills reflecting the new costs.
