Managing your electric budget as energy prices rise.
Our customers count on us every day for the energy they need, and we recognize our responsibility to keep help customers keep bills as low as possible. As with other utilities, DLC’s default service electric supply, or “Price to Compare” (PTC) rates will change December 1.
Why are rates increasing?
The rate increase is in the supply portion of your bill. This means the cost of energy being consumed has increased due to an overall rise in energy market prices and other factors. DLC does not generate power. DLC uses a competitive procurement process for energy supplied through default service at the Price to Compare. Because generation costs are directly passed to customers, DLC does not profit on any electric generation. Learn more about the breakdown of charges.

DLC’s default rates for electric supply and transmission are outlined below. These are the rates you will pay if you choose not to shop for an alternate supplier.

The default rate, or PTC, may be higher or lower in future adjustments. So, impact to your bill can vary over time.
If you are enrolled with an electric generation supplier and would like to switch to DLC, go to the Supplier Information section under Account Settings. Additionally, you can check your Account Settings if you are unsure who is supplying your electricity. NOTE: If you elect to switch to the PTC or want to choose another supplier, be sure to contact your current supplier for information about the terms and conditions of your contract. There could be fees for terminating your agreement of your supplier.
