Our Board of Directors has approved to return a “Power Cost Adjustment” (PCA) credit of approximately 6.6% of energy (kwh).
I hope that you had a great Holiday Season and a Happy New Year! Now
we turn the page on 2019 and move into 2020 and again look forward to
serving you all. As always the focus is to provide you safe, reliable electric
service as affordable as possible.
Reliability in our industry is the result of proper maintenance and work plan projects. In 2020 we will continue to replace old infrastructure and do the necessary maintenance on the system. We will continue to maintain our right of way and keep the trees clear from the power lines. This effort pays big dividends when storms roll through our service territory. We know that
your electrical service is very important, and we want to provide the highest level of service we can.
Affordability is also very important to us when we are planning out our yearly budgets. This year, we are excited to inform you that our Board of Directors has approved to return a Power Cost Adjustment (PCA) credit of approximately 6.6% of energy (kwh). The credit is a pass through from wholesale power supply. This will affect residential, commercial, public
authority and several large power rate classes. The credit will begin on February 1, 2020 and be visible on your electric bills for 12 months starting with your March 2020 billing.
An additional change to the 2020 municipal-residential rate class is the end of the Load Control Program. This program will end as of February 1, 2020. The program is no longer providing a savings for the District and the maintenance on the system is more costly than any benefits we receive from demand savings. If you are currently enrolled in the program there is nothing further you need to do at this time. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know. I also would like to thank those who participated in this program.
Our constant focus on reliability and affordability is how we best serve our customers! We look forward to serving you throughout the upcoming year and hope you all stay safe!
