Rates and Regulations

CORE’s rates and regulations are determined by its board of directors and overseen by the Colorado Public Utilities Commission.

Rates and Regulations (effective April 4, 2022)

CORE’s Board of Directors has approved changes to the cooperative’s rates and regulations that, starting with September 2022 bills, will:

• Increase our base rates (kWh) for electric service by an average of 6%;

• Increase the demand charge portion of our residential rate from $1.50 to $2 per kilowatt (kW) during the “on-peak” period of 4 to 8 p.m.;

• Increase for our non-residential rates the demand (kW) charge portion, which varies by rate class;

• Restructure some non-residential base rates to three-part rates with demand charge, energy charge and fixed monthly charge.
