Commercial Hydroelectric Adjustment
No Hydroelectric Adjustment this Fiscal Year
Because of higher than average precipitation, Roseville Electric Utility’s customers will not have a hydroelectric adjustment charge on their bills between July 2016 and June 2017. This will save commercial customers an average of 1.2% on their energy related costs.
At the end of June, precipitation for Roseville Electric Utility’s hydroelectric resources was above its normal of 52 inches for the year.
The adjustment was adopted in 2009 to help fund the purchase of electricity that was not provided from our hydroelectric resources due to lower than average precipitation. The hydroelectric adjustment is determined every May and based on precipitation in the Northern Sierras and the market price for electricity.
Below are links to the staff report and power point presented to the City Council at its March 18, 2009 meeting on the hydroelectric adjustment. You can also review the video of the City Council meeting.
