The Redding City Council voted Tuesday to eliminate several electric fees in order to reduce the burden on their low-income customers.

The following fees have been eliminated, as recommended by the REU (Redding Electric Utility):

  1. The $50 Service Reconnection Fee (for disconnects due to non-payment)
  2. The $89 Service Reconnection Fee for after 4:00 p.m. (for disconnects due to non-payment)
  3. The $25 Service Transfer Fee
  4. The $89 Priority Service Connection after 4:00 p.m.
In addition the $50 Priority Service Connection Fee will only be charged to new customers when they call to order the service after 11:00 a.m. on the day service is to be connected. Same day connections will now be free if the new customer calls before 11:00 a.m.

REU says the old fees hadn't changed since 2011. They conducted a review and determined that providing these services does not create a significant additional cost burden on the utility.

The staff believes the elimination of the fees are in the best interest of the community and will reduce the burden on those citizens who are low-income. They are the population most often facing re-connection fees for non-payment of their electric bills, and are the least able to afford them.

Monday was almost as hot as Sunday for most of northern California as a ridge of high pressure controlled our weather. A cooling trend is coming, but it will only cool to seasonable levels in the short term.
