Longmont Power & Communications' residential customers pay some of the lowest electric rates of 58 utilities in Colorado.

Franchise Fee Information

We believe that providing great service means providing clear and transparent communication. LPC electric rates and service charges include the 8.64 percent Franchise Fee paid to the City of  Longmont General Fund. The General Fund covers services typically associated with local government such as Police, Fire, Parks, Recreation, Planning, Code Enforcement, Library, and Economic Development.

Even with the inclusion of the franchise fee, Longmont Power & Communications’ rates are among the lowest in both the state and the nation. For individuals wanting to compare LPC rates with other utilities or associations, we will be glad to help you get the most accurate comparison

Commercial Energy Rate (CE)

Customers with less than 50 kW demand per month pay for electricity consumed as measured in kilowatt hours (kWh). A $20.20 monthly service charge also appears on customer utility bills to cover the cost of distribution power lines, transformer expense, substation expense, meter overhead and maintenance, meter reading, billing and customer service. These represent the fixed costs to provide service to each customer regardless of usage amounts.

Energy Charge, per kWh

7.92¢ per kWh 

When annual energy use exceeds 15,000 kWh, customers may choose to be on the Commercial Demand Rate (CD). When monthly use is 12,000 kWh or more or when demand exceed 30 kW, LPC may install a demand meter to determine the actual highest 15-minute integrated demand.


Commercial Demand Rate (CD)

Customers exceeding 50 kW demand in any two consecutive months pay for electricity consumed as measured in kilowatt hours (kWh) and for electric demand as measured in kilowatts (kW). Demand is the highest 15-minute integrated demand occurring during the billing period. An $82.50 monthly service charge also appears on customer utility bills to cover the cost of distribution power lines, transformer expense, substation expense, meter overhead and maintenance, meter reading, billing and customer service. These represent the fixed costs to provide service to each customer regardless of usage amounts.

If demand does not exceed 50 kW for 12 consecutive months, customers may choose the Commercial Energy (CE) rate.


Commercial Coincident Demand Rate (CCD)

Customers whose demand exceeds 800 kW in two consecutive months pay for electricity consumed as measured in kilowatt hours (kWh) and for coincident and maximum electric demand as measured in kilowatts (kW). Coincident demand is the 60-minutes integrated demand recorded during the Platte River Power Authority system peak hour and day in the billing period. Rates are developed for individual customers. Maximum demand will be the highest 15-minute integrated demand occurring during the billing period. For detailed CCD information, visit LPC's Rates and Regulations Page.
