What is YVEA doing about increased rate hikes from Xcel Energy?

We cannot control the costs Xcel passes on to us, their business decisions, or any other factors that come from power supplier rate increases. The vulnerability this creates for our membership motivated us to request proposals for new power suppliers. We are seeking long-term contracts that will provide stability for our evolving cooperative. What we are hoping to gain from this RFP is the chance to either work with our existing power supplier or a new one, to better serve our communities by providing safe, reliable, and affordable energy.
