CVEA electric rates remain steady in December
Members of the Copper Valley Electric Association saw their electric rates remain relatively flat throughout the month of the December. That’s according to the cooperative. CVEA says the reason is because the Solomon Gulch Hydroelectric Plant was able to generate more hydro power later into the season.
Winter months are usually when members see the energy bills increase because the project is ran on fuel during that period. CVEA says members should expect to increases in February due to scheduled maintenance at the cooperative’s cogeneration plant. The maintenance is scheduled for one week.
