STATUS ON PRESQUE ISLE POWER PLANT AND WHAT IT WILL TAKE TO KEEP US ON THE GRID

Will the main source of U.P. grid power be replaced?  If so, how?  How will this affect the electricity rates we pay?

True to form, the Norway Knights are shielded.

There’s no getting around it:  For lights in the U.P. to stay on, the plant must operate, and for it to remain in operation, power costs will rise.  The federal government has postponed the cost increase, which would have taken effect Monday, December 1st, 2014.  This extension, though, will last only a few months.  Customers of Norway Public Utilities should expect to see higher costs for electricity beginning in July of 2015.

The good news is that as a WPPI Energy community, we will be insulated from the worst of the financial disaster this situation involves.  While areas in our region will almost certainly face major increases in electricity costs, households receiving power from Norway Public Utilities will see a lower rise in these costs. 

Prepare for upcoming changes, and conserve energy when and where you can.  For energy-saving tips, call 906-563-9641, extension 501, or visit efficiencyunited.comThe City of Norway continues its collaboration with WPPI Energy, a cooperative agency serving us and 50 other public power utilities in the Upper Peninsula, Wisconsin, and Iowa to share resources and make consumers’ voices heard.
