At Poudre Valley REA we are committed to working with you, our members, on issues you care about.
The increasing cost of regulation on electricity providers is having an ever-greater impact on your monthly electric bill.
To help assure our members' voices are heard on this and other important issues, Poudre Valley REA has a Legislative Email Alert to keep you informed about regulations that may affect your electric bill.
Clean air and clean water are important aspects to our quality of life and public health. It is reasonable for the government to attempt to protect them through regulation. The trick is to balance the benefits of such regulation with the costs it imposes on consumers.
Tri-State G&T provides the wholesale power to Poudre Valley REA and 43 other electric cooperatives. Environmental and compliance costs were $231 million in 2011 and accounted for 20 percent of Tri-State's expenses. A recent study done by Tri-State for a typical consumer calculated that $13.99 of the average electric bill goes toward regulatory compliance costs.
