PUAB To Restress ECA Plan

City of Truth or Consequences

Following up a question from Public Utility Advisory Board (PUAB) Chairman George Szigeti regarding the implementation status of the approved Electric Cost Adjustment (ECA) December 18, city manager Juan Fuentes reminded members that city commissioners only approved a name change from the often maligned “Pass Through” charge appearing on monthly utility bills.
Fuentes said while commissioners supported the title revision, they did not endorse a proposed change in how the related charge is calculated.
