ARP Telephonic Rate Workshop
The ARP Executive Committee held a workshop last Tuesday to review the September All-Requirements Project loads, costs and rates. The average billed demand and energy cost for September was $75.95 per megawatt hour. Energy sales to participants were 3% above budget, and total energy sales to the power pool and other third parties were 50% above budget. The additional energy sales helped lessen the rate impact of natural gas prices that on average were $1.51 per MMBtu higher than budgeted. The full agenda package is available on the Portal.
