Economic Development Rate (EDR)

In order to retain businesses in, or attract businesses to California, the CPUC has approved economic development rates that provide an enhanced discount (30%) and a standard discount (12%) off their otherwise applicable tariff. The intent of economic development rates is to promote job growth and provide benefits to California’s economy. In order to qualify for an economic development rate, businesses must fill out an application that is evaluated by the IOUs and also by the California Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development.
