With this filing, ML&P’s COPA rate will be the lowest it has been since 2012. ML&P’s COPA rate has declined since 2017 due to fuel cost reductions associated with highly-efficient units at Plant 2A. This decrease has resulted in 28 percent savings or $36.25 on the overall monthly bill for the average ML&P residential customer consuming 550 kWh per month.
