Power Provider Meets Opposition from ACC

Mohave Electric Cooperative’s (MEC) power supplier, Arizona Electric Power Cooperative, Inc. (AEPCO), is seeking a rate decrease for its customers but has encountered opposition from consultants hired by the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC), which must approve all rate increases or decreases.  MEC Chief Executive Officer Tyler Carlson has testified before the commission in support of the AEPCO rate decrease.  However, the commission’s consultants reportedly are worried that the cost of providing power to the electric coops may rise again, prompting the coops to seek a rate increase in the near future.  The Mohave Valley Daily News has the full story here.
