Electric Information Sheet

Since it is much more cost effective and efficient for the Borough to purchase its electricity needs from outside generation owners/resources as opposed to building and operating its own generation plant, Mont Alto has contracted with a third-party power supplier to provide all of the electricity needs to power the homes and business throughout the Borough.

The majority of the costs paid by Mont Alto to that power supplier to provide the electricity used by the resident is being collected in the other charges on the resident’s electric bill.  When the total cost of the resident’s actual wholesale power supply purchases exceeds the amount being collected for in their other electric rates, then the remaining costs associated with providing that resident’s power is then required to be collected through the Purchased Power Adjustment (“PPA”) charge.

As a result, the Borough does not keep/retain any of those PPA charges, all PPA revenues received by Mont Alto are then immediately passed-through directly to that third-party power supplier to pay for their monthly wholesale invoices charged to the Borough on the customer’s behalf.
