API Data Output

In order to make constructive use of the Utility Rate Database output, it is necessary to correctly interpret the values associated with each property in the database. The terms property and value are used according to the following definition. The Utility Rate Database stores data as a collection of property:value pairs. The property is the name that defines a specific container where data is entered and stored, and the value is the data stored in that container. Here is a short excerpt from the API JSON output that illustrates the use of property:value pairs.

"usenetmetering": "false",

"flatratebuy": 0.13,

"flatratesell": 0.13,

"flatratefueladj": 0.01,

"fixedmonthlycharge": 10,

When exported as a CSV file, the properties are listed across columns in the first row, and each rate is listed across rows down the first column. The values of different properties for each rate rates are located at the intersection of the rates, which is defined by its UUID in the first column, and associated property.


Properties from the Basic Information Tab

  • Label – The label property contains the value of the UUID (universally unique identifier). The UUID is created upon creation of the rate in the database and allows for its storage and retrieval.
  • Name – The name of the rate.
  • Startdate – The date upon which the rate becomes effective.
  • Enddate – The date upon which the rates ceases to be effective.
  • Utility – The name of the utility company whose service territory the rate is applied.
  • Sector – The general class of customers who are subject to the rate. The sector property is limited to the following: residential, commercial, industrial, or lighting customers.
  • Description – Catch all for information relevant to the applicability and purpose of the rate.
  • Source – The value of this property directs a user to the location of the document used to enter the data. Usually, the url for an .html or a .pdf file on the web, but may also be personal communication, email, fax, or handwritten notes from phone conversation with utility personnel.
  • Version – The value of this property defines the version of the API that was used to extract the data.
  • Basicinformationcomments property includes information concerning any transformations made to the data that is entered into properties on the basic information tab of the URDB user interface. For instance, the explanation of the fixedmonthlycharge above or a summation of multiple adjustments entered as a single flatratefueladj would be explained here.


In addition to the other descriptive information on the Basic Information there is also a section on the electric specifications that often define rate classes.


  • PeakkWCapacityMin - this rate is applicable to customers with a peak demand greater than kW value.
  • PeakkWCapacityMax - this rate is applicable to customers with a peak demand less than this value.
  • PeakkWCapacityHistory - this property defines the historical period which the utility uses to determine the min and/or max peak demand used to determine the applicability of this rate.
  • PeakkWhUsageMin - this rate is applicable to customers with a total monthly kWh usage greater than this kWh value.
  • PeakkWhUsageMax - this rate is applicable to customers with a total monthly kWh usage less than this kWh value.
  • PeakkWhUsageHistory - his property defines the historical period which the utility uses to determine the min and/or max monthly usage used to determine the applicability of this rate.

  • VoltageMaximum - this rate is applicable to customers who takes service at a voltage less than this voltage value.
  • VoltageCategory - this property takes on the values primary, secondary and transmission. This property defines the voltage level to which the rate is applicable based on these general categories rather than exact voltages.
  • PhaseWiring - this property takes on the value of single phase, three phase, and single and three phase. This property defines the phase wiring to which the rate is applicable based on these wiring specifications.


Properties from the Demand Tab

The properties entered into the demand tab of the database are used to calculate the demand portion of a customer’s bill. Demand charges range the simplest customer monthly peak, analogous to non-coincident peak, demand to a variety of combination time of use charges. For instance, the demand portion of a customer’s bill may include an off peak demand charge and an on-peak demand charge or non-coincident and coincident demand charge. Some demand charges will also include tiered rates where the dollars per kW changes with the absolute level of kW demanded.

Seasonal/Monthly Demand Charge Structures

  • FlatDemandUnit – this is the demand units on which the flatdemandstrucutres charges are billed. Units include kW, kVA, and HP, which are implicitly monthly, and kW daily, kVA daily, and HP daily.
  • flatdemandmonth1 – This property will take a value between 1 and 9. The number (#) defines the charge structure applicable to the month of January. Seasonal/monthly demand charge structure # exists if flatdemandstructure/period#/period# exists and is defined by the values associated with flatdemandstructure/period#/tier#/max , flatdemandstructure/period#/tier#rate, flatdemandstructure/period#/tier#adjustment.
  • flatdemandmonth2 - flatdemandmonth12 – These properties are the same as flatdemandmonth1, but apply to the months of February through December.

The First Flat or Seasonal/Monthly Demand Rate Structure

If there is no value entered for this property, and there is a value entered in flatdemandstructure/period1/tier1rate, then all seasonal/monthly demand is charged at the flatdemandstructure/period1/tier1rate rate.

Properties from the Energy Tab

  • Usenetmetering – This property takes the value of yes or no. Yes indicates that true net metering applies to the rate, and no means that true net metering does not apply. True net metering policies obligate the utility to pay the “customer” the same price that the “customer” pays the utility for electric power, hence the net. If the check box for usenetmetering is selected by the user doing data entry, then all energy sell properties will be automatically populated with values equivalent to the associated energy buy properties.
  • Flatratebuy – This property will contain a dollar value charged to the customer for every kWh of electricity consumed regardless of time of day, year, or level of consumption during each of the customer’s billing periods. If this property is populated, then the energy portion of the customer’s bill can be simply calculated by multiplying the number of kWh’s consumed during each billing period by the dollar value in the property.
  • Flatratesell - This property will contain a dollar value paid (credited) to the customer for every kWh of electricity produced by the customer and transmitted back to the grid regardless of time of day, year, or level of production during each of the customer’s billing periods. If this property is populated, then the valued of energy produced by the customer would be calculated by multiplying the number of kWh’s consumed during each billing period by the dollar value associated with the property. This total dollar value is then subtracted from the value associated with the customer’s consumption to the get the total energy portion of the bill. If the total value associated with the Flatratesell is greater than the value associated with the customers consumption, then the consumer may be assigned a credit that roles over month to month or may receive payment for the value of energy produced.
  • Flatratefueladj – This property will contain a dollar value that is charged to the customer for every kWh of electricity consumed regardless of time of day, year, or level of consumption during each of the customer’s billing periods in addition to the Flatratebuy. If this property is populated, then the energy portion of the customers bill can be simply calculated by multiplying the number of kWh’s consumed during each billing period by the sum of the dollar value associated with the Flatratefueladj property and the dollar value associate with the Flatratebuy.
  • Fixedmonthlycharge – This property will contain a dollar value charged to the customer for each month service is taken regardless of the level of energy consumption and demand in that month. A month is approximately the length of each customer’s billing period.
