A sample commercial customer’s bill will decrease 4.7 percent or $67.84 per month, and a sample industrial customer’s bill will decrease 2.5 percent or $1,050.40 per month.

CSU has provided a look at the average savings their customers will see as of August 1, 2019.

According to CSU, adjustments are based on a “look back” of the previously forecasted fuel costs and a “look ahead” at projections for the next quarter.

Energy costs are variable and driven by price fluctuations in the coal, natural gas, and purchase power market.
