Economic Development Incentives

Changes are being made to Rate LPS (Light and Power - Small) that will expand the applicability of the rate creating potential savings for thousands of customers who may now qualify to move to the modified rate. Rate Riders CRI (Community Redevelopment Incentive) and EDI (Economic Development Incentive) are designed to promote and enhance economic development by offering price incentives in connection with the use of unoccupied buildings and for load additions on major expansions for new businesses when creating new jobs.
