Rate increase begins May 1, 2022

Dear member,

Bills generated on or after May 1, 2022, will see a $1.50 increase in the Basic Charge. This change will impact all rate classes. The Board of Directors concluded this adjustment is necessary due to forecasted increases in the cost of goods and services used in our daily operations. Additionally, an increase in the Basic Charge (a fixed cost) will provide more financial predictability for members. A change to kWh charges can have a more significant impact to our members during extreme changes in the weather.

Effective May 1, 2022, the rate schedule for typical residential service, compared to 2021, is below:

We understand the economic challenges our members face and will continue working to control costs by operating safely and efficiently to provide the most reliable electric service possible. For more information about financial assistance options, please contact us at 541.484.1151. To qualify, household income must be at or below 60 percent of Oregonā€™s median income.

Thank you for your membership with Lane Electric Cooperative and we appreciate your understanding.
