"Read the Fine Print..."
In response to an AP&T assessment of SEAPA published in the Feb. 21 edition of the Wrangell Sentinel - the comparison should be that SEAPA has provided $0.068 per kilowatt for 10 years and has also provided rebates based on prudent operations AP&T’s black Bear Project located at Prince of Wales generates power at approximately $0.075 per kilowatt, which is billed I believe at $.022 per kilowatt in Thorne Bay, and as far as I know, regardless of profit, AP&T does not provide rebates to its customers.
The physical assets of SEAPA and their value appear more than a little understated, but if you are acting as a used car salesman you need to get the customer in the door somehow. I think we all need to read the fine print.
I truly believe that what is good for SEAPA is good for the three communities. SEAPA and its three-member communities are an example throughout the state of success in the energy business. It seems that when a certain level of success is attained there are those that do not understand the dynamics of achieving that success; and/or those that are envious, or in competition, who will attempt to discredit them - just ask Bill Gates and Microsoft.
I am a board member of SEAPA, but more importantly, I am a husband, father, and grandfather, and a life-long native of Ketchikan trying to secure the future of our communities. No special interest; no financial interest; just being involved. Any and all opinions expressed here are personal and do not reflect any official opinions of anyone but me.
