Savings Slated with New Energy Park Upgrade
Since 2007, the Roseville Energy Park has been using state-of-the-art combined cycle technology to generate approximately 40 percent of the power that Roseville residents and businesses need. Locally generated power has kept prices stable for our customers and enhanced the area’s distribution reliability.

Hydroelectric Rate Adjustment Update
Roseville Electric receives approximately 16 percent of its electricity from hydroelectric resources in northern California. In years with lower than average precipitation, the utility must purchase additional power in the energy market to make up for energy it did not receive. Due to the recent lower than average rainfall, utility customers will see a hydroelectric adjustment on their bills beginning July 1 and continuing through June 30, 2014. The adjustment will account for approximately 1 percent of the total energy bill. For more information please visit www.roseville.ca.us/rates or call (916) 79-POWER.
