Farms served by WPS usually have one of our electric rates
for Small Commercial and Industrial service. These rates are designed to serve your
operation if it requires less than 100 kilowatts of electricity per month.

Small Commercial and Industrial Electric Service provides a firm supply of electricity
to your operation. This means the electricity is available continuously, whenever it's
needed. The only exception-as with any electric service-is when unexpected events occur
(such as a severe storm or a vehicle hitting a power pole) that make it impossible to
deliver power. When WPS learns of any outage, we immediately begin efforts
to restore power.
Each month, your bill for electric service includes the following charges:
Your farm is most likely billed based on energy consumption only. Customers of
WPS are billed based on energy only if their
total electric demand is 100 kilowatts or less.
If you are billed on energy only, the meter at your facility measures the
kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity you use each month. The table below shows
the Fixed Charge and Energy Charge you see on your bill.
* If your seasonal facility is used during the summer months,
you'll be billed for electric service May through Oct. If your seasonal facility is used during the
winter months, you'll be billed for electric service Nov. through Apr. Your electric
service may remain connected all year. Any incidental electric use during the "off-season"
will be included on your first bill of the following season. If your electric use is more
than 500 kilowatt-hours during the off-season, WPS
will send you a bill during the off-season.
Several factors can influence your monthly electric use. Major factors
that can be measured by WPS are
summarized in the lower left-hand corner of your monthly bill.
