Power Balance 12 provides customers with the ability to pay the same bill amount every month during their contract, depending on their usage. Customers enrolled on Power Balance 12 can use up to 2,000 kWh and still pay the same monthly bill. You can find out how much this charge is on the electricity facts label (EFL) under "monthly energy charge".
Customers who use more than 2,000 kWh/month will be assessed an $0.18 per kWh energy charge for usage above 2,000 kWh. Your monthly energy charge will depend on your usage and is divided into 2 tiers. See the below examples for how to calculate your energy charges.
For usage of 0 to 2,000 kWh:
If you use 1,000 kWh, you will be billed $160 plus taxes.
For usage of over 2,000 kWh:
If you use 2,500 kWh, you will be billed $160 for the first 2,000 kWh, plus $90 (18 cents per kWh for the last 500 kWh), plus taxes.
The flat monthly energy charge will be prorated for customers who enroll with 15 days or less remaining in the current billing period and use less than 1,000 kWh during that period. If you use over 1,000 kWh or have more than 15 days remaining in your billing period, you will be charged the flat energy charge of $160 plus $.18 per kWh for usage over 2,000 kWh. See the below examples for how to calculate your first bill:
For usage of 0 to 1,000 kWh within 15 days remaining in the billing period:
You will be assessed a prorated rate calculated by multiplying your usage by the $160 flat energy charge.
kWh usage/1000 X $160
If you use 800 kWh:
80% X 160 = $128
For usage over 1,000 kWh or more than 15 days remaining in the current billing period:
If you use 2,500 kWh, you will be billed $160 for the first 2,000 kWh, plus 18 cents per kWh for the last 500 kWh, plus taxes.
If you use 800 kWh with more than 15 days remaining in the current billing period, you will be charged $160 plus taxes.
For usage under 2,000 kWh, you will pay the same energy charge every month for the term of the contract.
