"In spite of ongoing efforts to man- age costs, operate efficiently, and en- courage energy-efficient behavior on the part of our customers, the cost of providing service still is more than we're able to recover through our rates," said Chuck MacFarlane, Otter Tail Power Company president and CEO. If the PUC approves the request as filed, the average base rate increase for customers in the residential class will be $9.68 a month. Similarly, subject to PUC approval, the average base rate increase for customers in the commer- cial class will be $15.13 a month. The base rate increase will be more for some customers and less for others, de- pending on the rates on which cus- tomers are served and the amount of electricity they use. These examples don't include fluctuations in the cost- of-energy adjustriaent. "Our South Dakota customers have received the benefit of this low-cost generation resource since 2009," said MacFarlane:"While base rates may in- crease as a result of this project, the En- ergy Adjustment line on customers' bills has the potential to be lower. That's because the wind-generated electricity that Otter Tail Power Com- pany receives from owned renewable resources reduces our need to purchase higher-priced electricity from the wholesale energy market. That reduces the amount of purchased-energy and fuel costs in the Energy Adjustment on customers' bills. Wind can't be our only resource due to its variability, but it currently is one of the lowest-cost re- sources available." MacFarlane also cites the costs as- sociated with developing and permit- ting the Big Stone II project as a factor contributing to the company's request. "As part of this rate increase request the company has asked to spread re- covery of the Big Stone II development costs over a five-year period. Otter Tail Power Company withdrew from Big Stone II in 2009 due to the broad eco- nomic downturn, financing risks, the withdrawal of other project partici- pants, and the fact that the Environ- mental Protection Agency's indication in 2009 that it intended to regulate CO2 under the existing Clean Air Act made it unclear if the project still was a least- cost option. 161STAGES OF LIVE OVER 250 ARTIST BOOTHS 500 STREET ENTERTAINERS FOOD & DRINK FIT FOR A KING LIVE ]OUSTING 3 TIMES DAILY ROYAL WEDDING AND MUCH MORE Come check out "DEALS" throughout the boutique!
