SCE Commercial Demand Charge Rate Increase 4/1/2013

Southern California Edison has increased the rates for commercial electrical ratepayers effective April 1 2013. Most signifiant is the increase in the electrical facilities demand charge for the option R rate for solar customers. The facilities demand charge has increased by 53% for GS-2-R, 45% for TOU-GS-3-R, and by a whopping 74% for TOU-8-R.

The new rate schedule also phases out the GS-2 non-TOU rate, which will mean a major cost increase for alot of customers. And the Critical Peak Pricing demand response rate becomes the default rate for many commercial electrical customers. The proper peak demand control strategy and rate schedule selection are now more important than ever.
