Did You Know?

There have been recent discussions regarding electric rates for customers of SPU.

There has not been an increase in the SPU electric energy rate since 2012.

The SPU electric service charge increased by $1.00/month in 2016 which was the first increase since 2008.

Notice to Customers

NOTICE:   The utility bill you just received may be higher than you expected because it contains usage from the hotter months of summer. 

How can that be?   This bill (due October 17) reflects meter readings collected mid-August through mid-September.  The readings reflect customer usage for the 30-35 days prior, mid-July to mid-August.   

While it was not an extremely hot summer, it was very humid and AC units were running.  Additionally, the cost of power is more expensive during these peak periods.  The increased cost from our power provider, MMPA, is reflected in the Power Cost Adjustment line on your utility bill. 

If you were sprinkling or using your irrigation system during this same timeframe, you will see the increase reflected in the water portion of your utility bill as well. 

If you have any questions regarding your bill, please contact SPU at 952-445-1988 for assistance.

Vehicle Fair

SPU attended the Vehicle Fair on May 19th at the Shakopee Senior High School. We brought our bucket truck and the Digger Derrick (auger) truck. The kids loved them! We had a constant flow of climbers and horn honkers! What a fun night for all. Thank you for organizing Shakopee Community Education.
