Supplemental Residential Rate

Customers with an additional meter for residential purposes at the same location as their home are eligible for the Supplemental Residential Rate. A residential purpose means that the majority of energy use is for domestic purposes such as lighting, household appliances, and the personal comfort and convenience of the home. The SRS rate provides cost savings on the monthly service and energy charges when compared to commercial rates. In addition, the SRS rate does not incur sales tax or a commercial demand charge, which lowers the overall bill amount. The types of services that are eligible for the SRS rate:
  • Detached Garage
  • Personal Shop
  • Electric Gate
  • Pool House/Pool Pump
  • Storage/Tool Shed
  • Irrigation System
  • Well Pump

Common types of services that do not qualify for the SRS rate include, but are not limited to:
  • Temporary Service
  • Separate property from the single-family dwelling
  • Commercial business
  • Church
  • Barn
  • Shelter for animals
  • Services with monthly demand over 25 kW
  • Services with monthly usage over 7,500 kWh
  • Power needs requiring a three-phase service
Barns and sheds, along with grain bins, tobacco stripping rooms, shelter for animals and other farm use services, fall into the agricultural category and cannot be considered for residential use. To see if your meter qualifies for the SRS rate, contact Customer Relations at 615-736-6900.
