Flathead Electric Cooperative will be implementing an average annualized rate increase of 3.75% as a result of increased wholesale power costs. The Cooperative anticipates continued increases in future years. Flathead Electric's Board of Trustees decided to recover these costs gradually over the course of a few years rather than implementing a large one-time rate increase. Most of us experience higher electricity bills in the winter months, so the Trustees chose to delay the rate increase until this spring.
