Electric Cost in Alaska

Oklahoma residential customers generally pay between 7.7-cents and 8.5-cents per kilowatt hour for electricity, among the lowest in the nation.

A North Pole Alaska residential customer pays $200.83 in energy and fuel adjustment charges for 991 KWH used. Which works out to .202 cents per kilowatt hour. Not counting additional customer charges. According to the last bill.

We live 450 miles from some of the largest known gas reserves in the world. Shame on Alaskan Politicians for letting things get to this point. Those in office and those in past office. Shame on the Board of Directors of Golden Valley for not having the foresight to tap those reserves with the States blessing. Let us have the resources promised by the constitution for the good of the people now.

Wake up Alaska

  1. I dont understand the reason for the difference in prices across the US. At first glance you might say the pricest are highest for the states that consume the most, but that wouldn't work for Alaska.
    Here's a table on prices:

    You are not alone with high electricity costs. My June electric bill in Connecticut comes out to 20 cents per KWH, and as of July 1st, our rates go up by over five percent!!

  3. We should have had natural gas long before now. Now that fuel prices are so high that fixed-income folks have to leave the state because they can't stay warm this winter I have to ask the oil companies: how much profit do you have to make before you drop the prices? Haven't you guys screwed us enough? Supply and demand? I say bullshit! 40 BILLION in profits says I'm right!
