Just three weeks ago, my co-worker Debbie Simock posted an interesting story about filings we made in Idaho requesting changes to our rates. Well, here we go again. Today we filed two additional requests for changes to rates in Idaho – a 2.11 percent decrease in electric rates and a 1.63 percent increase in natural gas rates. These are both pass throughs and have no impact on company earnings. If the Idaho Public Utilities Commission (IPUC) approves these changes, they will become effective on Oct. 1. Read the news release.  

Sound familiar? There may be several changes to rates in Idaho that will become effective on Oct. 1 if the IPUC approves our requests. We’ll post the outcomes here and give you the overall change you’re likely to see on your bill.

This is just another example of what we’ve been saying for some time – Avista must file requests for any changes to our rates with the state utility commissions that regulate us. We must have their review and approval before we increase or decrease customer rates. Do you know of any other service providers who must do that? Certainly not the gas station or the supermarket. Not the airlines or the Internet carrier, either.

So, bear with us as we work through the process. We promise to keep you informed about changes to your rates as they occur. In the meantime, think about how you use energy in your home or business. Are you being as efficient as you could be? Check out the tips and rebates we have that can help at www.everylittlebit.com.
