Getting a better understanding of your Basic Service Charge

Posted | January 8, 2020

Each month you’ll see a line item for the Basic Service Charge (BSC) on your utility bill. The BSC is a fixed minimum charge that helps us defray some of the monthly administrative and fixed system costs involved in providing you the energy you need to live your life, regardless of how much or how little energy is used. These costs include but are not limited to:

• Meter maintenance (reading and processing)

• Service lines

• Billing and payment processing
