BPA Raises Power Rates

BPA

Bonneville Power Authority, the quasi-government agency that administrates power generation and distribution in the Pacific Northwest, has announced that it is increasing the wholesale power rate by 9% and the transmission line rate by 11% in the coming year.  Acting BPA Administrator Elliot Mainzer explains that the increases are necessary so that the agency can maintain carbon-free federal generation over the long term.  Wholesale power and transmission rates are developed every two years through a formal rate-setting process, with the most recent one beginning last November.  Mainzer points out that the rate increase will affect the various utilities and coops differently depending upon the amount and type of power they purchase.  BPA is the primary supplier of power to Lower Valley Energy.
