Beartooth Cooperative Rates Decrease
Written by Andrew-Rossi on May 8, 2017
Some residents of the Bighorn Basin will see a drop in their electric rates this summer.
At their April meeting, the trustees of Beartooth Electric Cooperative adopted a financial strategy that includes a five percent revenue reduction applied entirely to energy charges. In Wyoming, residents of Clark will see the benefits of this rate decrease effective July 1st.
Beartooth General Manager Jim Webb explained that the goal is to have power users cover the cost of their service as closely as possible, without under- or overpaying. Seasonal use and other factors are also considered.
This five percent rate decrease will bring the total rate reductions to 25 percent over the last two years. Rates went down five percent in August 2015, ten percent in March 2016, and five percent in August 2016.
