GVEA Rates Drop

Electricity rates are coming down in the Fairbanks area.  Golden Valley Electric customers from Delta Junction to Fairbanks and Healy will see their bills drop 11 to 13 percent, depending on service level as of December 1st.  Golden Valley is benefiting from additional power from Anchorage, natural gas fired energy that’s less expensive than oil generated electricity in Fairbanks.  KUAC’s Dan Bross reports.
