Wisconsin Utility Rates

Electric Rates

Wisconsin Rates - ElectricWisconsin customers of Alliant Energy are currently paying the lowest residential electric rates among the five investor-owned utilities in the state
.

Commercial and industrial customers are also paying rates among the lowest in the state. Alliant Energy’s electric base rates have not gone up since 2010.

Our rates are set by the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSCW), which approved our proposal to keep base electric rates unchanged through the end of 2016.

Base rates cover our basic infrastructure, like operation and maintenance of power plants, power lines, pipelines and substations. Base rates constitute roughly three quarters of a residential customer’s bill; fuel costs account for roughly one quarter.

Changes in the cost of fuel to produce electricity are made annually, in a separate fuel rate case.

Our 2015 fuel adjustment for electric bills will increase an average residential customer bill by about $2.33 or 2.9 percent and appear on bills from January 1 through December 31, 2015. Average residential usage is about 600 kilowatt hours per month.
