Very good article.
New Roads obtains it's power from LEPA.
Sounds like a wise investment in the future.
There are issues that must be addressed.
New Roads residents have very affordable electric rates and many will disagree with me. They average about 10-12/cents/ kw WITH variable fuel adjustment and no surcharges or hurricane recovery charge BS.
Much cheaper than Entergy or PCE.

I have just paid my Entergy bill, I didn't see anything about hurricane recovery charges. My bill throughout the summer remained the same as it did last year, except August which was cheaper than last year. My June and July bill was about 160.00 each month and my August was 155.00, I have 2, 4ton a/c's they run constantly in the summer. My house was built in the early 80's and is not insulated like the houses of today. I have been on PCE and the city, Entergy has given me the best service for the price.

That's pretty comparable to a fair price in this region. Rates can vary widely though.
Cities must be profitable in terms of utilities. They have expenses beyond the costs of power generation. There are street lights that burn all night, sewer pumps, etc, etc.
There's police protection and other expenses.

The whosale cost of LEPA's power is not a secret and can be found easily.
The fuel adjustment however, remains unknown to us until we recieve the bill.
Here's a breakdown of NR's utility rates for residential customers.
Units = Kw/h
First 20 units at 0.1303
next 80 units at 0.08985
next 200 units at 0.07985
additional units at 0.07485cts/kWh

Your numbers or two years old do another internet search.

My numbers come from my bill dated 9/8/12.
No Internet search needed.
But you are correct about one thing.
The rates have not changed in over two years.
On entergy you are paying for two hurricanes. Soon to be three.
Entergy has already sent the letter to it's customers.

You are 100% correct about Entergy's billing. I wish I didn't have Entergy, my bill would be less.
