Mohave Wastewater Purchased Power Adjustor Mechanism

November 09, 2016

​Powering Your Wastewater Service

From moving wastewater away from homes and businesses to operating complex treatment systems, it takes a lot to power your wastewater service.

In September 2015, the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) approved new rates for wastewater service in your district. As part of that decision, the ACC also approved the Purchased Power Adjustor Mechanism, a surcharge that adjusts each year depending on the cost of purchasing power to run your wastewater collection and treatment system.

What is the Purchased Power Adjustor Mechanism?

The Purchased Power Adjustor Mechanism is adjusted once a year to reflect changes in the cost of power needed to deliver your service. The Purchased Power Adjustor Mechanism recovers or refunds the cost of purchasing electricity when the cost goes above or below the level approved by the ACC in September 2015. It will appear either as a credit or a charge on your monthly bill.

Beginning October 1, 2016, Mohave wastewater customers will see a credit on their monthly bill, according to their customer class. The next adjustment will be in October 2017.
