ARP Executive Committee Rate Workshop
The ARP Executive Committee held a rate workshop last Tuesday to review the June All-Requirements Project loads, costs and rates. Due to the hot weather near the end of the month, participant energy sales for June finished 2.8% above budget. ARP rates for June also benefitted from monthly gas costs that were 42% below budget. The June average billed demand and energy cost to participants was $60.41 per MWh, which was the lowest billed cost for the month of June in over 15 years. The full agenda package is available on the Portal.
