Our Santa Meet & Greet drive-thru was a great success. Hundreds of people got a chance to talk with Santa and get some Christmas cheer. We are very glad we could give people this opportunity because there’s very few options for meeting and talking with Santa this year.

Painesville Municipal Electric – RATE UPDATE FOR TOWNSHIP RESIDENTS
Painesville Electric last updated their rate schedule in 2017 which set rates from June of 2018 through May of 2021. Under this rate schedule customers outside of the City were required to pay a 16% surcharge on top of the rates charged to City residents. This surcharge has been in place for many years. When the new rates went into effect several Township residents reached out to the Trustees because they were seeing significantly higher monthly bills compared to the previous summer. We now know that this was due in part to the new rates as well as a billing error in the summer of 2017 when township customers were billed at the lower winter rate as opposed to the summer rate. We had a meeting with the Painesville City Manager in the summer of 2018 to relay the concerns that our residents expressed to us. The City Manager then held two public meetings to discuss the rate revisions and to hear from township customers (26% of Painesville Electric’s customers are located in Painesville Township, Concord Township, Perry Township, North Perry and Grand River). As a result of these meetings the City committed to having a Cost of Service Study performed to justify the surcharge amount levied on customers outside of the City. The study was recently completed by Utility Financial Solutions and presented to Painesville City Council last week. The study shows that a surcharge of 6% is justified for customers located outside of the City. To determine this, the study evaluated the following variables for customers located within the City and outside of the City; # of customers per mile of power line, # of customers per transformer and # of feet required for a power service drop.
The representative from Utility Financial Solutions presented a possible rate schedule for 2021, 2022 and 2023 which would reduce the surcharge by 3.3% per year resulting in a surcharge of 12.7% in 2021, 9.4% in 2022 and 6% in 2023. The proposed rate schedule eliminates the summer and winter rates, it would modify the monthly customer charge each year and increase power rates in years 2 and 3.
How would this impact Painesville Township residents? Even with the increased monthly customer charge we would see a RATE REDUCTION of 3.8% in 2021, a reduction of 1.1% in 2022 and a reduction of 1.2% in 2023. These reductions are due to the rollback of the surcharge from 16% to 6% over the three-year period. The new rates would most likely go into effect in June of 2021.
What’s next? This revised rate structure and reduced surcharge are currently just a proposal from the consultant hired to complete the Cost of Service Study. City Council will be holding a work session to discuss the rate proposal and possibly make changes to the rate structure. Will they adjust the surcharge to the justified value of 6%? Remember, these councilpersons answer to the City residents who elected them. Are they going to do the right thing and accept the justified surcharge, or will they vote to continue gouging out-of-City customers? Reducing the surcharge also means increasing the rates for in-City customers to offset the revenue they would lose from the lower surcharge.
If you would like to watch the Painesville Council meeting where the study and proposed rate schedule was discussed you can do so by clicking the following link and skipping 24 minutes into the meeting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFXcTUsE1_w&feature=youtu.be
What can you do as a Painesville Electric customer? You can call the City Manager 392-5800 and Assistant City Manager 392-5903 to first thank them for having the Cost of Service Study completed as promised to justify the surcharge and then ask them to urge Council to make the fair decision which is to reduce the surcharge.
The real decision lies with Painesville City Council. You can find email addresses and phone numbers for Painesville City Council members using this link https://www.painesville.com/council
Please reach out to one or all council members expressing your appreciation for the Cost of Service Study and nicely urge them to treat non-City residents fairly by reducing the surcharge to the justified level.

Thank you and please share this post to spread the word,

If snow does materialize please drive safely and remember please do not park on the street, it creates a safety risk for the plowing.

Here we are on a nice Sunday afternoon. Get ready, tomorrow is Monday and the snow is coming!

We will start out with rain on Monday but as temperatures fall and colder air moves in, rain will begin to mix with snow Monday evening into early Monday Night, before switching to snow. 8-12 inches are expected for those of us in the snow belt followed by a measly 5-8 inches for the rest of us.

We also know what happens with the first snow fall of the season.... Many forget how to drive. Fill your gas tank, make sure you have plenty of windshield washer fluid and put your snow brush in the car.

In closing, enjoy our Public Service Announcement below reference our plow drivers. Never assume they can see you as you try and pass them because your in a hurry and never pass them on the right as that’s where they push the snow and it won’t end well for you.

The purpose of our parks is to provide recreation space for our neighborhoods and add value to the community NOT for people to dump their garbage. These are from Crislip Park in Painesville Township Park yesterday around 2:30 in the middle of the day. The tires are still there, so if you’re the person who did this we will give you time to remove them before we turn these and the video over to the Lake County Sheriff. If you know the person please tell them to be an adult and remove them.

From First Energy

As of 6 a.m. there are 52,000 CEI customers without power, including some in Painesville Twp. This will be a multi-day restoration effort.

CEI crews restored power to over 55,000 customers since yesterday afternoon. High winds through midnight impeded restoration efforts. Since there is widespread damage throughout our service territory, engineering personnel and overhead line supervision continue to evaluate all the damage including forestry needs, broken poles and downed wires. A full complement of crews are responding to the over 1,000 hazard / wire down reports plus 100+ road closures. Contractors are also assisting with restoration. Crews will continue to work 16 hours on with 8 hours rest until each customer’s power is restored.

The following power restoration information plus more may be found at: https://firstenergycorp.com/outages_help.html

In years past we have had a Riverside sports team helping and in turn the Twp donated to their team to help support their program. This year Riverside is prohibiting any teams from participating because of covid precautions, so we contracted with Waste Management for help. If you see a waste management truck in front of your home that is why, they will be helping with pick up.
