Customers fight Tri-State electric rate hike

DURANGO — Customers upset with electricity price increases in the Four Corners area are asking the Colorado Public Utilities Commission to crank it down.

La Plata Electric Association, Empire Electric Association, White River Electric Association and some of their biggest customers say the new rate for wholesale electricity by Tri-State Generation and Transmission is unfair.

According to the Durango Herald, Tri-State maintains that the utilities commission has no jurisdiction over its rates, which are set by a company board that includes representatives from the protesting co-ops.
