Bill Comparison Calculator

The new rate design for all member rate classes will become effective in April 2021. The new rates, designed to be revenue-neutral to BEC, will result in some members paying a little less, and some paying a little more, depending on both member usage and the load placed on BEC’s System (kW) during peak periods. Our rate comparison calculator will let you see exactly how this new rate structure will impact your bill.

If you need help with the calculator or understanding how to reduce your system usage (kW) give us a call at 406-446-2310.
