## Rate Summary

**EFL Rates** are rates the PUC requires to be shown online.
It is the average rate you will pay for that plan **at that exact usage amount**.
If the plan has a $75 bill credit that comes in at 1,000 kWh, the 1,000 kWh rate will reflect that.
It will NOT tell you that the same plan at 999 kWh will cost you twice as much!

**Calculated Rates** are the rates we've calculated you'll end up paying **over the course of a year** based on weather patterns and an average usage amount.
This should give you an idea of what you'll actually be paying, because you aren't going to hit exactly 1,000 kWh every month.
Unfortunately, not all plans will have enough data to generate these numbers.

**Averaged Rates** are used for plans in which we don't have enough rate data to calculate exact numbers.
It's some fuzzy logic, but that's about all we have to go on.
What we do is **average the EFL rates** based on estimated usage for each month, and then take the average of those.
