Charges & Fees - Commercial
Each year, ECE reviews the energy-consumption history of our major business customers and compares this usage with several applicable ECE rates. As a result, we might recommend switching to a different rate to reduce energy costs. This is a free service. Before hiring an energy consulting firm to provide the same information, and before purchasing new electrical equipment or changing your business hours or production processes, we urge you to contact ECE.
