Noting with dismay the shambles that our WAPA is in I checked on the Puerto Rican Power companies charges for similar power service. Puerto Rico uses oil just as we do here in the VI. Their power generation seems to be mainly fueled by oil. Here is the listing for Puerto Rican power charges from their web page:
The cost of electrical services in the industrial sector depends on the consumption and the kind of service provided. (example for services provided under 50 KVA included below)
monthly charge = $5.00
energy per KW/hr = $0.065,
fuel adjustment charge per KW/hr = $0.034858
That figures out to be $0.10 per KWH.
Just how can WAPA justify their inept management of our (so called) utility. Why do we have to pay these people wages when they do not perform? WAPA should not be allowed to manufacture electricity or water, just distribute it and should have to buy their products from efficient suppliers.
