Electric Rate Structure Studied

LVE

As electricity rates from Lower Valley Energy’s power wholesaler, Bonneville Power Authority are poised to increase later this year, the local cooperative’s board of directors has been examining the model used to determine the billing structure for its members.  LVE Spokesman Brian Tanabe says the system adopted by Bonneville charges higher rates in the winter than during the summer and the cooperative is looking at a structure that mirrors that. Tanabe says the details of LVE’s seasonal rate design have not been determined as yet, and while the cooperative’s levelized billing has been offered for several years now, its future is still not entirely certain. Still, Tanabe says while it is not yet known exactly what the rates will be set in October by Bonneville, for now, they tend to be some of the lowest rates in the nation. Tanabe says it is predicted that the October rate increase will amount to about a 5%.

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
