Fifteen residential members will be actively engaged in three focus group meetings as part of the stakeholder engagement process. The group encompasses residents from all six San Luis Valley counties.
The first meeting was held via Zoom on Sept. 23. An independent facilitator led discussion on the changing electric industry, as well as the development and explanation of rates. Meeting two will be held on Oct. 21; topics will include rate comparisons across the region, fairness across customer segments and SLV REC rate components and changes. The third and final meeting will be held on Nov. 18.
As the conversations develop, the participating members will have an opportunity to express their thoughts on rates, rate design and more.
A report from this meeting series will be produced and presented to the REC Board of Directors as part of the stakeholder engagement process.
