New electric bill helps you understand your energy use and cost

Polk-Burnett has improved your monthly billing statement to highlight valuable information about your electricity use and its cost. 

As a cooperative, Polk-Burnett sets rates to cover the actual cost of delivering electricity to your home, farm or business, and we are transparent about these actual costs and your energy use on your billing statement.  We know information is powerful, and we want to help you take control of the electricity you use and the money you pay for it. 

The following are bill improvements you'll see beginning in October:

Daily availability charge replaces monthly basic electric charge on bill

Availability charge chartThe monthly basic electric charge has been changed to a daily availability charge on your new statement. This better communicates the actual cost of making electricity available to you on a daily basis.
