Keeping Rates Low

OPPD rates are far below the national average. Use our rate calculator to determine your estimated annual energy cost and average cost per kilowatt-hour. 

We are dedicated to keeping power affordable for companies that want to do business here. Our rate riders help customers meet renewable energy goals and allow us to offer customized discounts. One of the greatest advantages of being a customer-owned utility (operated by a publicly-elected board of directors) is that our electricity rates are based solely on the cost to provide service, not the financial interests of stockholders.
