Why is there a Facility Charge?
That question has been asked more than a few times at our office...the answer...It’s the fairest way to divide our costs. Our costs can be divided into two groups of costs: fixed and variable. Fixed costs include maintenance of the lines, billing and administrative costs. Variable costs are the cost of power and energy. Fixed costs are the same whether or not any energy is used by a particular member. It is fair, therefore, that each member pay his or her share of these costs. The variable costs of power and energy are paid for out of the kWh rate.

If we eliminated the facility charge our rates would have to go up accordingly. Our members who live here full-time would be subsidizing our members who are part-time residents. As a cooperative we follow a cost-of-service principle, where everyone pays their share, but no more than their share.

Service responsibilities
PSREC is responsible for the safe distribution of electricity to the meter at your home. This includes maintaining all equipment, including meters, which we install on your premises in order to provide services.

As a customer, you are responsible for maintaining the safe operating condition of all equipment on your side of the meter.

PSREC will deny service if your facilities are not in compliance with all construction and safety standards and local codes.

You must provide reasonable access to the meter and safeguard PSREC property to prevent loss or damage, other than ordinary wear. If your meter does become damaged, notify us immediately.
