ComEd’s Hourly Pricing: How to calculate the customer capacity charge

Want to know your capacity charge before signing up for ComEd’s Hourly Pricing program? Here’s how to calculate it:

1. Go to this page:  https://secure.comed.com/MyAccount/MyService/Pages/UsageDataTool.aspx, choose “View Summary Data Online,” and “Add” the individual’s ComEd account number.

2. Click “View Usage Data” and it’ll take you to a results screen showing vital stats.  The “Capacity PLC” at the top is his/her capacity obligation, calculated just for them.

3. Multiply the individual’s Capacity PLC by the following:

  • Scaling factor:  1.11384
  • Forecast pool requirement: 1.0882
  • Monthly capacity charge:  $5.82686

4. The product of those four numbers is your capacity charge.
