(IID Board may have to raise electrical rates)….That was a recommendation heard Tuesday.
Staff told the Imperial Irrigation District Board of Directors that if they want to expand the IID energy transmission capacity and maintain its independence as an electric utility, the base rate for power would need to be increased. The recommendation is that rates be increased by 7%. The average household electric bill would increase by $7 to $13 per month. The Board of Directors heard the recommendation as an information item this week. No action was taken.
