The Municipality of Anchorage and Chugach Electric have agreed on the sale of Municipal Light & Power. The agreement includes a $10 million reduction in the purchase price, making it just under $1 billion.
Other terms of the agreement include depositing $36 million in a new restricted rate reduction account, to protect original ML&P customers from rate increases.
It also includes a $15 million donation by the municipality for a treatment center. Within five years after closing, the municipality must use that money for the Alaska Center for Treatment, a planned substance use disorder center will offer a combination of outpatient, inpatient treatment options, transitional housing and crisis stabilization.
