Notice of Public Rate Hearing

PVREA is holding a public rate hearing on November 29, 1 p.m. at the PVREA headquarters, 7649 REA Parkway, Fort Collins, CO 80528.

The Board of Directors will be discussing proposed rate changes and pilot rates for 2017. Members who cannot attend may mail or email in comments prior to the rate hearing, and comments will be shared with the Board of Directors.

The 2017 rate changes are the result of a 4.23% rate increase from Tri-State G&T, PVREA’s wholesale power provider. PVREA is not increasing any rates for PVREA operating costs. This increase will result in about a 1.7% overall increase to PVREA members. The average residential member will see a little over $2.00 per month increase on their bill.

Starting in June and July 2017, PVREA is also implementing pilot rates for load management programs. Look for more information in the beginning of the year from PVREA.
