Public Notice of Proposed Tariff Amendments:
Change in Customer, Demand, and Energy Charges

October 17, 2022

The Board of Directors of Alaska Village Electric Cooperative, Inc. is considering tariff adjustments which include changes in Customer, Demand, and Energy Charges.

The adjustments represent an average change in rates of 9.6% which will help the Cooperative to manage cost increases due to inflation. These changes will also better reflect the cost of serving AVEC communities and bring rates into closer alignment with those costs. If approved, the proposed rate changes would apply to service used on or after December 30, 2022. The specific proposed rate changes for Bethel, Yakutat, and all other locations are attached to this notice.

All other locations include Alakanuk, Amber, Andreafsky, Anvik, Brevig Mission, Chevak, Eek, Ekwok, Elim, Emmonak, Gambell, Goodnews Bay, Grayling, Holy Cross, Hooper Bay, Huslia, Kalskag Lower/Upper, Kaltag, Kasigluk, Kiana, Kivalina, Kobuk, Kotlik, Koyuk, Marshall,

There will be a Public Hearing on November 18, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. in the AVEC Board Room. Members can join in via teleconference upon request.
