Customer Owned Solar Installations

UCNSB has a program whereby customers can install a renewable generation system (RGS) on their premises and interconnect those facilities to UCNSB's Electrical System. Click here for forms and details.

Load Management (click here to be directed to detailed application)

The Load Management Program helps save energy and money. Upon signing up for this program, the UC will install a load management receiver on the central air/heat unit and/or water heater. This radio-controlled unit enables the UC to shut off your appliances for a few minutes during certain time intervals. Most people do not even notice when load management is in use. In exchange, we credit your electric bill up to $7.50 per month, or $90 per year. Service verifications may be required to keep credit applicable. 

Water Rates and Conservation

UCNSB uses an inverted block rate structure for potable water and wastewater to encourage conservation and discourge wasteful water use. Consumption amounts are separated into four blocks, with rates per 1,000 gallons increasing as your consumption increases. With this type of structure, customers who use less water pay a lower rate than customers who use more water.
