ED3 ANNOUNCES 2018
ELECTRIC RATE DECREASE OF 2.0%

The Electrical District No. 3 (ED3) board of directors approved its 2018 budget and is excited to announce that the 2018 electric rates will go down an average of 2.0% for residential, commercial, small industrial, large industrial, and agriculture.

William Stacy, CEO and General Manager of ED3, said the District has worked diligently to reduce costs and for the third year in a row will provide a rate decrease to its customers effective January 1, 2018. This is during a time when other utilities and businesses in Arizona and across the nation continue to raise their rates.

Customers may be interested to know that ED3’s residential rates are lower than those of the Phoenix-based electric power provider, Arizona Public Service (APS). With APS' recent rate increase and the 2018 ED3 rate decrease, on average, ED3's standard residentail rates are 10% lower than APS.

ED3 began operation in 1926, to provide area farmers with electricity to irrigate their crops and is a non-profit utility currently serving an area of approximately 245,500 acres around Maricopa and Stanfield, Arizona. The District operates 12 distribution level substations, approximately 1,034 miles of 12 kV lines (621 miles of overhead and 413 miles of underground) and 77 miles of 69 kV lines. The District currently serves approximately 25,005 residential, commercial, and irrigation meter connections.
