The Resource and Tax Adjustment (RTA) charge will increase on most members’ bills in 2019.

How much is the increase?

For residential members, the 2019 RTA charge will be $0.0025 per kilowatt-hour, which is $0.0013 higher than December 2018. This will increase the average residential member’s bill by less than $1 per month. Commercial accounts should contact an account representative to discuss the RTA charge for their rate class.

What is the RTA?

Dakota Electric uses the RTA to adjust prices according to changes in wholesale power cost, property and real estate taxes and conservation spending. The charge is a direct pass-through of costs and is reviewed by the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission.
