Listed below are current fees that remain in effect in 2022.

In the utility industry, it is customary to assess a range of fees for special services that are associated for the benefit of a particular customer. These fees are designed to recover costs associated with providing special services and help decrease pressure on system-wide rates, which otherwise subsidize special services provided to limited groups of customers.
