Sawnee EMC announces rate decrease for remainder of 2018

Sawnee Electric Membership Corporation (Sawnee) Board of Directors has approved a retail rate decrease for the remainder of 2018. On average, each affected account will see a reduction of $9.95 for every 1,500 kWh of energy used.

Generally, this action affects all Sawnee EMC residential accounts and most commercial accounts. The net effect of this action is to lower the amount each affected member pays for electricity for the rest of the year.

The rate action announced today will reduce the WPCA factor to $0.00887/kWh for energy billed under this rate during the remainder of 2018, which includes all bill produced in November and December.

“We are very glad that we can make this decrease for our members,” states Michael Goodroe, President and CEO of Sawnee. “The Board of Directors and staff of Sawnee strive to keep costs and rates as low as possible, while still delivering excellent service,” he added.

Remember, the actual reduction for each account during this period will vary, and is dependent on the level of kWh used each month.
