I noticed a blog post in the Lewiston Morning Tribune from Friday that might be worth a look. Reporter Elaine Williams discusses Avista and gives a nice recap of why we lowered natural gas rates June 1.

Here’s a taste: “The Idaho Public Utilities Commission allows utilities to pass savings onto its customers when prices for electricity or gas are less than predicted. It also allows temporary increases if the prices for either one are more than predicted. The reason for the latter is that power utilities are a different kind of business. They have to be ready at a instant to provide electricity or gas and they don’t always know what demand will be. In the summer, when the temperature exceeds 100 degrees, Avista has to have enough electricity on hand to power all the air conditioners that are running at full tilt.” Read the full post.
