Just as prices have increased for food, gasoline, and most other goods, so have electrical power costs. The Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Government and all other electrical power providers have been advised by suppliers that electrical power costs will be higher through the summer.
Terrebonne is a member of LEPA. Last summer, the average electrical cost that LEPA paid was $40 per megawatt-hour (MWh). In May, that cost had doubled to $80 per MWh. Energy experts are predicting the rate will rise even more during the summer to as much as $130 per MWh. LEPA has advised all its member cities that power rate hikes are inevitable. Unfortunately, these costs must be passed on to electric customers.
