    CMP Delivery Prices changed on 7/1/2017
    - Generally prices went down due to the completion of a previous program
    - Standard residential rate reduced the effective fixed fee by $1.80 per month, but it increased the per kWh charge by $0.003645/kWh.
    - TOU service charges increased by $0.24 to $10.24.
    - Optional TOU Savings Plus have been canceled. Only optional is the Supersaver rate. I've been moved to that.

    We received a letter from CMP about a change to our plan. We were on TOU Savings Plus and it said that our usage says that we could save more on the Supersaver plan and that we would automatically be moved to it on July 1st. Turns out it was just that they'd canceled Savings Plus and we'd save more on that than on regular A-TOU.

    Based on the last 12 months we will save more this year on Supersaver than we did on Savings Plus.

    New Delivery Fees (Fee kWh is how many off-peak kWh you'd need just to "pay off" the difference in fee:

    Just wanted to clean this up. I messed up the column headings in my first post
    New Delivery Fees (Fee kWh is how many off-peak kWh you'd need just to "pay off" the difference in fee:

    Old rates. Fee kWh is compared to new fixed rate. Value in parentheses is compared to previous year's fixed prices

    Also note that the Standard Offer supply (energy) price for 2017 is $0.06691/kWh. That's at a flat rate for residential customers.
