Sawnee EMC Announces $9.9M Rate Decrease

(Cumming, August 24, 2015) – Sawnee Electric Membership Corporation (Sawnee EMC) announced today that the Corporation’s Board of Directors has approved a reduction in the Wholesale Power Cost Adjustment (WPCA) factor, a component by which most of the Cooperative’s electric bills are calculated. This reduction will produce a positive financial impact for almost every Sawnee EMC member.

This rate change, which goes into effect on September 1, 2015, will reduce monthly Sawnee EMC bills by $10.57 for every 1,000 kWh used. It is estimated that this rate reduction, in total, will save Sawnee members approximately $9.9 million dollars in lower energy bills processed from September through the end of 2015. Those affected members who use more electricity, will see even bigger savings… while those who use less, will see lower savings.
