South Central Power Company is implementing our first rate adjustment since 2017, after a planned 2020 rate adjustment was postponed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Starting April 1,2022, our monthly consumer charge will increase by $2 for residential members, from $17 to $19. The rate at which we calculate your distribution charge is also changing.
