The income graduated fixed charge proposes to lower bills for low-income customers by including a fixed charge to the monthly bill. This is not a new fee or charge; you are already paying these charges as part of your price per kWh. With the income graduated fix charge, the amount you pay will depend on your household income, not how much electricity you use. In addition to this fixed amount, you will pay a lower price per kWh. The goal of this program is to help fund low income programs and create equity in who is paying for these programs.
