NIKISKI STEAM TURBINE GENERATOR
The new steam turbine is running and generating electricity off waste heat from our old gas turbine. More good news -- Golden Valley Electric Association has agreed to buy that power between now and the end of this year when we stop buying energy from Chugach Electric Association. It's a good deal for both HEA and GVEA. We get revenue for energy produced before we need it, allowing us to keep the new turbine running during this time and work out any bugs in the Nikiski plant's upgrades. GVEA gets comparatively low cost energy from us for the next six months.

JULY RATE INCREASE
Look for a 4.39% increase on this month's residential electric bill (18.075 cents per kWh, up from 17.315 cents). This will cost the average 630 kWh residential energy consumer about $4.79 more than last month.
