March Natural Gas Rate Increase
Afton, WY (January 27, 2017) On January 27, 2017 in a meeting of the Lower Valley Energy Board of Directors, the Board voted to increase natural gas rates by 4 cents. Due to the cold weather and higher than normal consumption of heating fuels, our wholesale natural gas prices have been steadily increasing this winter. The board was able to minimize the rate increase by half by writing off the balancing account (uncollected fuel costs). The rate increase will take effect on March 1, 2017.
