Over the past couple years, we’ve all faced challenges, changes and even opportunities. Through it all, ALP Utilities has remained unwavering in our commitment to going above and beyond to improve the communities we serve.
During its December 20 meeting, the Alexandria Board of Public Utilities was happy to affirm there would be no electric rate increase in 2022. This marks the third year in a row that there is not an electric rate increase. The reason for this is twofold: First is the rate stability that ALP has seen from its wholesale power supplier Missouri River Energy Services. MRES supplies ALP with roughly 68% of the electricity used in Alexandria. Second is the long-term strategy of planning infrastructure improvements, like undergrounding primary electric services, in a measured way that attempts to mitigate large rate increases for all our consumer owners. As many across the Nation are feeling the effects of inflation and increasing utility rates, this is great news for Alexandria residents and businesses.
The board did approve a 6% overall water rate increase for ALP Utilities customers starting January 1. The water rate increase affects monthly facilities and usage charges for residential and commercial customers. This rate change allows us to continue to maintain and improve both the water treatment and water distribution systems. As a result, a typical residential water customer with a 3/4 ” meter using 4,000 gallons of water, will see an average increase of $1.42 per month.
As we look forward to a New Year, ALP continues to seek out ways to innovate, embrace new technologies and put best practices in place to protect you, your family and your livelihood.
