Solar Choice Rate Calculator

NOTE: Solar Choice is closed to new enrollments. This rate calculator can be used by existing Solar Choice customers to estimate their bill impacts for remaining on the program in 2022.

A customer enrolled in the Solar Choice program remains on their existing electric rate plan. When you enrolled, you chose to have 50% or 100% of your monthly electricity usage to be generated via solar projects. This calculator provides bill impact estimates for customers who enrolled in this program between July 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021 (referred to as "2020 vintage" in the Price Terms and Conditions (PDF, 287 KB)). Most participants are part of this group.

Calculate your own estimated costs

If you enrolled in Solar Choice outside of the dates above you are on a different vintage rate. The average impact for a residential customer using 500 kWh/month is about $3.50 at the 100% participation level. However, with a few pieces of information, you can estimate your own monthly costs.

  • Find your vintage rate on your bill
  • Multiply your monthly usage from your bill (example: 500 kWh/month) by the total price per kWh that applies to you from the Price Terms and Conditions (PDF, 287 KB) to estimate your monthly impact. These are outlined in a table by vintage year. Customers at the 50% participation level will only have half the impact.
