Purchased Power Adjustments

If the cost of energy is increased or decreased by our supplier due to a change in the base an appropriate adjustment shall be made for the sales of energy to each customer as approved by the Bozrah Utilities Commission.

The current Purchased Power Adjustment applicable for all rates is $0.05017/kWh.


Effective with the January 2015 bill the Purchased Power Adjustment (PPA) increased from $0.04017 to $0.05017 per kWh. The PPA has not changed since September 2014. What this means for the average residential household using 700 kWh, is an increase of $7.00 per month, approximately 7%.

The increase in PPA is due to wholesale market power conditions resulting in significantly higher power costs from our supplier for the coming year. Even with this increase BL&P power costs remain among the lowest in the area.
