DUKE ENERGY RATES ($/Kwh)

(Includes both generation cost and distribution cost)

(Note that these figures are an average for all customers in each category of business shown below. Actual individual customer rates will vary based on volume and other pricing issues. Load factor that determines peak rate costs is an important element.

Rates in any category below can be skewed depending on the mix of customers. For example, a large percentage of very high volume customers will lower the average rate and a high percentage of very low volume customers will raise the average rate. Similarly, a high percentage of customers with low load factors and minimal peak power useage will also tend to lower the average rate while a large percentage of customers with high peak useage will raise the average rate. This is the same for other factors used to determine customer rates.)
