CME 2019 Rate Schedules
As an electric cooperative, rates are set by the directors of the cooperative. These directors are elected by and from the members of Charles Mix Electric to make up a seven member board of directors. The rates they approve affect every one of these board members directly. This form of governance is a system of self-regulation of rates, permitting at-cost operation. Thus, rates are not reviewed or approved by the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission.
