Adopted 2017 Rates

On November 29, the San Miguel Power Association (SMPA) Board of Directors held their monthly meeting, in Ridgway, at which they adopted a proposed rate re-structure that changes the balance of access charges and billing rates, generating revenues needed to cover a recent wholesale rate increase.  Overall, this new rate structure draws no more revenue from the membership than what was drawn in 2016.
