Residential Interruptible Rate

Power Supply Cost Adjustment
A power supply cost adjustment shall apply to all kWh usage for all customer classes.  The power supply cost adjustment amount is determined by comparing MMUís actual power supply costs (minus the Industrial Rate class) to a base kwh cost. The power supply cost adjustment reflects either an increase or decrease in power supply costs, which may raise or lower your net monthly cost for electricity.

Water Rates  (Effective January 1, 2017)

Residential Rates
The monthly readiness-to-serve (fixed) charge recovers a portion of the capital cost of the infrastructure which facilitates the delivery of water to each customer, including the water filtration plant and water distribution system. Also included in the readiness-to-serve charge is a portion of the cost associated with the availability and maintenance of our city fire protection system. These fixed costs are allocated to each customer connected to the water distribution system, whether or not they choose to use any water. The commodity charge for any water used shall be in addition to the monthly readiness-to-serve charge. The readiness-to-serve charge shall be determined by the MMU Commission.
