Turlock Irrigation District (TID) will hold a public rate hearing at 9am in the TID Board Room at 333 East Canal Drive Tuesday, November 22nd to discuss the proposed rate increase. The rate would increase by 4% each year over a 3 year period to reach the 2.8 cents to cover environmental compliance costs. What this means for the average residential customer would be an additional $4 per month in 2012, then another $5 per month in 2013 and 2014 for a total increase of $14.

The rate increase is necessary to cover the cost of compliance new state environmental laws: 1) AB 32 requires a limit in greenhouse gases through a cap-and-trade program, and 2) SB1X2 requires that 33% of power must come from renewable energy source. To comply, TID constructed the Tuolumne Wind Project at a cost of $427 million to generate 136.6 megawatts of wind energy.
 
The projected annual cost of the Tuolumne Wind Project and the AB 32 cap-and-trade program which is $45 million and $10 million respectively. Estimated cost per kilowatt-hour is 2.8 cents by 2014 which would create a budget shortfall of $38 million in 2012 and $50 million by 2014.
 
The final budget and rates will be approved at the December 6th Board Meeting in order to go into effect in January 2012.
