OPALCO’s new rates are unfair | Letter

  • Jan 16, 2015 at 1:53PM

The worst thing about OPALCO’s new “rate structure” is how grossly unfair it is. For example: With the higher “facility charge” added to the kilowatt-hour charge a typical small user of 400 kilowatt-hour per month would pay $34 for power plus the $38.90 facility charge, a total of $72.90 divided by 400 equals 18.2 cents per kilowatt-hour.
