As the electricity provider to Estes Park, Fort Collins, Longmont and Loveland, Platte River sustains its financial health and funds its operations through tariffs which include the wholesale rates charged for electricity delivered and services provided to its customers.

The wholesale rates charged to the owner communities by Platte River are currently the lowest in Colorado, enabling owner communities to provide residential and commercial customers with highly reliable service at competitive retail rates.

The primary tariff charged to the owner communities by Platte River has historically included two primary seasonal charges: energy and demand.

To meet current and future community needs, Platte River proposes to introduce a more transparent wholesale rates structure. The new rate structure will be revenue neutral for Platte River. Please view the following pages for more information about Platte River’s wholesale rates.
