The Cooperative calculates your bill based upon the amount of kilowatt hours (kWh) consumed at the metering point. All bills are on a constant cycle; therefore your meter may not be read at the same time as a meter in another location. 

All charges in electric bills are approved by the regulatory body having jurisdiction, either the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission or the Arizona Corporation Commission. 

CEC shall make available upon customer request not later than 15 days from the date of request a concise summary of the rate schedule applied for by such customer in compliance with the rules of the applicable regulatory commission.

A portion of your electric bill is made up of a power cost adjustment. This adjustment allows the Cooperative to pass on to the consumer their portion of the increased cost of the electricity over and above the base cost designated in the rate schedules necessary to purchase the electricity used during the past month.  The Cooperative does not keep any portion of this amount since it must go to pay our power supplier.
