Lower winter rate begins October 1
The winter rate is 10.1¢ per kWh and winter billing dates are October through May. Rates are lower in the winter because demand and wholesale power costs are lower.
The summer rate is 11.6¢ per kWh and summer billing dates are June to September. Rates are higher in summer because demand and wholesale power costs are higher.
As a co-op, Polk-Burnett charges what it costs and passes the winter savings on to you.
