The purpose of the public hearing will be to discuss the proposed rate adjustments brought upon by wholesale power cost increases imposed on Garkane Energy by Deseret Power

Proposed Rate Adjustments

Comparative look at bringing Twin Cities into parity with other Garkane communities. 



Garkane must increase rates beginning January 2022. Wholesale power suppliers are increasing rates to Garkane by $1 million dollars. It has been proposed to add an additional $370,000 to this increase in an effort to bring all Garkane member communities into parity with regard to rates. During the years 2009-2021, the Twin Cities of Colorado City and Hildale have paid higher rates to offset a facility charge incurred with the acquisition of the Twin Cities' system. The “cooperative way”, over the course of time, would make all member classification rates the same.

Are you in favor of equalizing member classification rates across all Garkane member communities at this time? Please respond Yes or No and add a comment if you choose.
