As your neighborhood utility, we provide you some of the lowest prices for water and power in the country. From time-to-time, we adjust our prices. Our current electric rates went into effect Oct. 1, 2019.
Even With the New Electric Rates, Our Electric Prices are Half the Cost of the National Average
When it comes to value, publicly-owned utilities provide some of the best prices for power, especially Vera Water and Power. Our price for electricity is 6.58¢ per kilowatt hour. The national average is 13.02¢, and the Washington state average is 9.72¢. Our monthly base charge for residential customers (effective Oct. 1, 2019) will be $17.75.
If you have a fully electric home and consume 1,200-kilowatt hours per month, your average monthly bill comparison would look like this:
|Puget Sound Energy||$119|
|Kootenai Electric Cooperative||$114|
|Inland Power and Light||$98|
|Vera Water and Power||$92|
Our Water Prices are Also Very Competitively Priced
Our base residential rate of $17 per month, means you will always receive the water you need for daily use at an affordable cost.
