Does EIA publish electric utility rate, tariff, and demand charge data?
No, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) does not collect or publish data on electricity rates, or tariffs, for the sale or purchase of electricity or on demand charges for electricity service. Also, EIA does not publish retail electricity rates or prices for peak or off-peak periods (sometimes referred to as time-of-use rates).
EIA does publish the number of utility customers that are enrolled in time-based electricity rate programs, which are administered through a tariff, including time-of-use, real time, variable peak, and critical peak pricing, and critical peak rebate programs. The data are collected with the EIA-861 survey and published in the Dynamic Pricing file of the EIA-861 database.
The Utility Rate Database, sponsored in part by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), is a free source of rate structure information from utilities in the United States. Utility rates for cities in the United States are available at DOE's Open Energy Information (OpenEI) platform. Individual utilities may also have detailed rate/tariff schedules and demand charges.
