Avista makes annual rate adjustment requests

Staff Writer

Avista has made several annual rate adjustment filings with the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission (UTC) that would, if approved, result in an overall decrease in electric and natural gas rates, effective Nov. 1.
These annual filings have no impact on the company’s earnings, and are not related to the proposed acquisition of Avista by Hydro One.
If approved by the UTC, residential electric customers in Washington using an average of 938 kilowatt hours per month would see their monthly bills change from $87.33 to $82.07, a decrease of $5.26 per month, or approximately 6 percent.
Residential natural gas customers using an average of 65 therms per month would see their monthly bills change from $50.66 to $45.29, a decrease of $5.37 per month, or approximately 10.6 percent.
