It was reported by an Energy Choice Matters blog that the Public Utilities Commission of Maine (PUC) has implemented new Standard Offer Service (SOS) rates for large non-residential customers of Central Maine Power (CMP) and Bangor Hydro Electric (BHE).
CMP’s default service customers in the large non-residential service class will pay $0.114294/kWh, inclusive of all ancillary cost components. This energy price will be followed by a capacity charge of $4.16560/kW-month. This capacity charge is based on the individual customer’s capacity obligation, which is set for the entire year.
BHE’s default service customers in the large non-residential service class will pay $0.116439/kWh. Similar to CMP customers, these rates are inclusive of all cost components but are added to a slightly lower capacity charge of $4.05530/kW-month.
