We will hold a Rate Change Meeting on Tuesday, May 29, 2018, at the Vernonia Rural Fire Department Building, 555 Bridget Street, Vernonia, starting at 6:00 PM to discuss changes in the Rates.
The Board of Directors are still determining what form this rate increase will take but is expected to be an increase of 3.9% to Residential users.
You will see this increase in the bill you receive in November for the power that is consumed and billed for October.
Rural Electric Cooperatives work on a cost basis; we charge just what it costs us to provide the service. As our costs change the price that we charge should also change. See the Ruralite articles for April and May for more information.
All members are welcome to attend and to ask questions at this meeting.
