Effective October 1, 2019, the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) implemented rate increases for both wholesale power and transmission costs to 143 Northwest electric utility companies including Fall River Electric Cooperative. BPA is the primary source for Fall River’s wholesale power.
After careful consideration, the 9-member elected board of Fall River Electric determined that the Cooperative could absorb BPA’s rate increases. This action by the board of Fall River Electric was possible due to the exceptional financial condition of the Cooperative. For full details on the board’s decision, please read the Co-op’s November FLASHES newsletter which can be viewed here on the website under the tab QUICK LINKS.
