Decision 1511030 approving final settlement agreement, resolving disputed issues, and adopting the 2015, 2016, and 2017 revenue requirements for Apple Valley Ranchos Water Company: Application 1401002 (November 23, 2015)

[…] The substantial rate increase is largely due to a reduced sales forecast in order to comply with the Governor’s mandatory reduction executive order. […]

Based on the adopted revenue requirements, a residential customer maintaining consumption at 16.45 per hundred cubic feet will see its monthly bill go up from $64.68 to $81.87 each month, which represents a $17.19 difference and a 26.58 percent increase. However, an average residential customer that achieves the conservation goals set by the Governor’s Executive Order will see its monthly bill increase by $1.71 and 2.64 percent only.
