Rebates and No Rate Increases From ERPUD

erpudAs Elk River Public Utility District prepares to wrap up FY2015 and pass its FY2016 budget, general manager Mike Gundersen says that gas customers can expect fiscal-year-end rebates again this year and no rate increases for the year to come.
In fact, the rebate amount will effectively credit customers for two month’s service charges, returning approximately $400,000 to its customers.
Residential customers, who pay between $9 and $12 each month depending on service, will see their bills drop by $18 and $24 respectively in June.
Industrial processing customers are most likely to notice the rebate without any such notation. Those customers, who pay a minimum $200 charge each month, will see a $400 drop in June.
Large commercial customers, who pay a minimum $50 charge each month, will notice a $100 drop in June.
The last rate increase ERPUD came four years ago in July 2012.
