When compared with all Minnesota cooperatives, WH’s basic monthly service charge is within the lower quartile of charges. The 2017 rate adjustments tally to an average increase of approximately $2.50 per month, or under 8 cents per day. And while wholesale power costs have increased 35 percent since 2008, WH has held the line on operating expenses (see Graph). Our distribution costs are lower than the vast majority of cooperatives in the state and nation, and lower than most systems our size.

Wholesale power costs versus operating costs for WH Still, 70 percent of our costs come from power supply, most of which we purchase from Great River Energy and Basin Electric Cooperative. Cost pressures on these generators will only increase as they try to adapt to changes in energy markets. WH is spreading these increasing costs over the same number of sales as in 2008. We’d love to tell you that rates will stay flat, but they are going to increase. Our job is to control those costs as much as we can at the co-op, while giving you additional tools to control your costs. Our Energy-Saving Programs, MyMeter tool, Co-op Connections Card, community solar arrays and new rebates for energy-efficient technologies are prime examples of how you can save energy and money.
