Multiple Idaho rate adjustments result in slight increase   

Tags: Electricity, Rates, Natural Gas

The Idaho Public Utilities Commission today approved four rate adjustments that result in a little more than a one percent rate increase - about $1- for both Idaho electric and natural gas customers. The adjustment will be effective on Aug. 1.

You can read the commission release here.

The release reads in part, “The Idaho Public Utilities Commission announced two adjustments today – a base rate increase and an electric and gas supply decrease – and will announce an increase in the company’s energy efficiency rider later this month. The fourth component, the resumption of the Residential Exchange Credit from the Bonneville Power Administration will result in a rate decrease.”

If wholesale natural gas rates continue to decline, we expect natural gas customers will see a significant decrease later this fall. These decreases are likely to more than off-set the small increase announced today.

Being a customer from WA we just saw a slight decrease in our gas bill from Avista. It is nice to know that all the talk about adjusting down the rate is not all talk.
