Aberdeen, WA – The Grays Harbor Public Utility District today announced it will host a series of community workshops to gather public opinion and feedback from customers about proposed changes to the residential rate structure. The proposed changes are in response to customer feedback on the current residential rate structure and are intended to do the following:
· Ensure costs of the system are equally shared among residential customers
· Structure the rate to ensure bills reflect every kilowatt-hour of energy used
· Encourage energy conservation
The residential rate structure is the design and organization of billing charges for residential customers and takes into account the costs of providing services to customers, as well as the amount and cost of energy used by each customer. The proposed changes would result in a slight decrease in most residential bills with greater savings for those who use the least amount of energy.
