A rates expert will explain the key factors impacting rates. WHEN: 10:30 a.m.-noon, June 30. WHERE: Ontario Senior Center, 225 E. B St., Class Room 1, Ontario. Map WHO: Russ Worden, a director in the SCE rates group, will give a presentation and answer questions. BACKGROUND: It's important for customers to understand why their electricity bills are changing. The key factors: · The cost to generate or buy power is increasing: This cost increase is passed directly to the customer, and SCE doesn’t make a profit from this. · Infrastructure investments: SCE is updating the grid to deliver safer and more dependable electricity. · Rate design changes: Currently high-usage customers subsidize low-usage customers. With this upcoming change, costs will be more evenly spread among all of our customers. PARKING: Parking is available in the center’s lot.
