Rate Structure

Mid-Carolina has always put our members first, embracing innovation and delivering value that make your every day better. Our rate structure does just that by placing you in control of your power bill each month. It’s a unique, break-through approach to billing — one you won’t find from other electric providers.

Want to save money? Simply use energy outside of on-peak hours — the most expensive time of each day — and instead take advantage of some of the lowest energy rates in the country. By limiting use of multiple large appliances at the same time during the on-peak period, you can save bundles.

Here’s how it works.

Our rate structure has three parts that make up your total power cost. It’s set up that way to give you control over how much money you spend. The account charge is set, but you can adjust the energy charge and on-peak charge by deciding how and when you use power. And by adjusting your energy use during on-peak hours, you can take advantage of super low-cost energy and reduce your power bill.

Save, then save some more.

To significantly lower your monthly power bill, use power outside of on-peak hours, reaping the benefit of low-cost electricity.
