Choose the Rate Plan Right for You

You may be able to save money on your power bill based on how and when you use electricity.  Choose from the rate plans below to decide which rate plan is right for your household.

Family Dwelling Rate Plan (Standard Rate)

Family Dwelling is the standard residential rate plan available to all customers. This rate plan has a monthly base charge and a rate that changes based on your monthly electricity usage and the time of year.

Family Dwelling – Demand

Family Dwelling – Demand is a residential rate plan that can help customers better manage their electric bill by shifting demand away from peak periods. Customers pay the same monthly base charge as the standard billing rate we offer, with separate charges for demand and energy.

Family Dwelling FlatBill Rate Plan

Family Dwelling FlatBill is a residential rate plan available to qualified customers. It offers a contracted fixed bill amount for a 12-month period based on your previous year's history at your current location.

Time Advantage Rate Plans

Time Advantage is a billing rate that is measured according to the time of day, season and amount of electricity you use. Just like the standard billing rate we offer, Time Advantage includes a monthly base charge in addition to the charge you incur for the amount of energy you use.

Renewable & Alternate Energy Rate Plan

Greener State allows you to power your home with renewable energy through purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). RECs represent energy generated from renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar.

Residential Lighting

Outdoor lighting is a great way to give you peace of mind about your family's security. This service can be added to your monthly billing along with your primary residential rate.

Bill Calculation Factors

Bill Calculation Factors consist of NDR and ECR.

Natural Disaster Reserve (NDR) is designed to adjust monthly billings to address the financial impact attributed to certain natural disasters.

Energy Cost Recovery (ECR) is the fuel charge, and is stated in mills/kwh. A mill is 1/10 of a cent; example: 29.689 mills = 2.9689 cents.

The following pdfs list the NDR and ECR rates for this year and previous years, for your reference.

Alabama Power Company’s Rate OPS (Optional Products and Services) currently offers Renewable Energy Certificates, which you can learn more about here.
