Good news for electric customers

Electric consumers can expect a bit of a present next year.

Golden Valley Electric Association says the average household that consumes 660 kilowatt hours will see its monthly bill drop by about 4 dollars.

On December first, Golden Valley's Fuel and Purchased Power Charge will decrease almost nine percent.

Since January 2012, the charge has dropped 24 percent.

The decrease in that charge will more than offset a slight increase to the Utility Charge that goes into effect January first.
