Electric Power Rates – Commercial/Industrial

AUB offers seven basic commercial rates, GSA, GSB, GSC, GSD, MSB, MSC and MSD. “GS” denotes General Services and applies to commercial entities not engaged in manufacturing, such as churches, schools, restaurants, retail stores, etc. “MS” denotes Manufacturing Services. The differentiation between the GS and MS classes is determined by the entity's Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) code. Commercial rate qualification is determined by the customer's kilowatt (kw) demand.

The GSA rate is for commercial accounts with a demand between 0 kw and 5,000 kw; GSB/MSB are for commercial/manufacturing accounts with a demand between 5,001 kw and 15,000kw; and GSC/MSC are for accounts with a demand between 15,001 kw and 25,000 kw.

Note: All rates per kWh in the commercial/industrial schedule below are AUB's base rate. Each month, TVA announces a Fuel Charge for the period, which is added to the AUB base per-kWh rate.

Seasonal/Time of Use Terms: where applicable in the rate classes shown below. The following terms are defined as follows.
Summer = June - September
Winter = Dec - March
Transition = April/May and Oct/Nov
Summer On-peak hours: 2 p.m. - 8 p.m. Eastern Prevailing Time
Winter On-peak hours: 5 a.m. - 11 a.m. Eastern Prevailing Time
All other times including Saturday, Sunday, Federal Holidays, and the Transition periods are Off-Peak.
