If Hodge was not lying to us about the .39/kwh, then should folks start seeing this lower rate on their February residential bills?

Please post to this thread if and when this lower rate shows up on your bill.*-)

Just got my latest bill. It was definitely down. When all the charges were added up, is was down from about .53 to .43 I think. I'll take it.

The Hovensa supply hasn't yet been depleted and prices in STT have decreased significantly in the last couple of weeks.

That's about what it is($3.65) at the 2 gas stations by the Sugar Estate post office. Puma stations considerably high and still selling above $4 and other stations I've seen in the $3.89 range.

We've been getting gouged for decades by WAPA so don't think that's going to change anytime soon, even if prices do come down.
We'll never pay as low as the state's with their 9¢ to 19¢ per KWh.

Ours went down. Needs to go down more, though.

It's a gradual process as the switch-over to propane and the use of the new solar farms factors in. That was the plan with the first reduction showing up in customer bills this month.

Has anyone thought of developing a small, modular, nuclear power plant on the Hovensa property. Pros: cheap, clean electricity with more or less limitless desalinated sea water. Many high tech, well paying jobs. Cons:.....well, the whole nuclear thing. One must remember that the U.S. Navy operates hundreds of small nuclear reactors in their fleet and has never had a serious accident. Maybe permanently docking an aging ship with a safe reactor at the Hovensa dock would bring the price of electricity WAY down. Food for thought,....and discussion. Polite discussion, that is. I believe Puerto Rico is considering building a nuclear power plant.

Briefly discussed, not even seriously considered for a host of reasons and in PR briefly discussed but only by a few and highly unlikely to come about.

Yes, but there is no way the ignorant masses would accept it.

They fear what they do not understand.

Ha!

If the US Navy built and operated it. No problem.
If the VI government operated it, we'd all soon be glowing in the dark!

Maybe you should just wait for it instead of jumping the gun just to stir up melee. January 1 - June 30 2015 rates are 39.2 - see website:

I have 6 wapa accounts. My bills for Dec. 12 to Jan. 7 were all over the place.

1@ .40
1@ .41
1@ .43
1@ .44
1@ .54
1@ .58

All the same bill dates.
The .40 and the .41 used very close to the same kwh. The higher rates were for less usage. The .54 and .58 were very low usage (vacant apt. and a pump room). The more you use, the lower your rate. That just seems wrong to me.

I paid the bills on line this morning and noticed the 39.2 that Old Tart posted. Hope they stick to it.

You won't see any significant change in a billing date of December 12-Jan 7th as the lower rate didn't become effective until January 1.

My bill is lower than it's been in half a decade.
Not as low as it was a decade ago.
Still not low enough.

This is the first phase of the reduction. I wouldn't be complaining!

The one that was .54 is commercial. All others are residential, including the one at .58.
