A proposal that does not raise electricity rates was presented to the public at an electricity rate public hearing Tuesday following the Imperial Irrigation District Board of Directors meeting. The proposal seeks to avoid a base-rate increase by using funds that were previously overcollected. It assumes that the energy cost adjustment will remain at 3.24 cents per kilowatt-hour. It seeks to use $36.1 million in the energy cost adjustment fund that were overcollected in 2011. The ECA is a floating charge to electricity customers that rises and falls with the price of fuel that is used to deliver power.

County Air Pollution Control District Senior Manager Brad Poiriez said InterGen has been test-firing its turbines about once a week.
