Special Service Fees

Special Service Fees

Current fees and changes to fees that will be effective Jan. 1, 2017

In the utility industry, it is customary to assess a range of fees for special services that are associated for the benefit of a particular customer. These fees are designed to recover costs associated with providing special services and help decrease pressure on system-wide rates, which otherwise subsidize special services provided to limited groups of customers.
