This change is a reduction of 150 feet from the 500 feet of free primary and secondary power line extension that had been in effect since January l, 1991. Also effective August I, if a VEA power line must be extended beyond the 350 feet of free footage, the consumer will pay more than the current rates for it--depending on the type of electrical service required (single or three phase, or single to three phase conversion). The revised rates make this expense more in line with the actual installation costs of VEA line extensions. New VEA consumers who submit a complete application package by July 31, 1997 to either of VEA's new bud. ness representatives will still qualify for the 500 feet of free line extension. Direct any questions about this, and all other line extension questions, to the new business reps or to VEA's staking engineer at (702) 727-5312; or toll free from anywhere in Nevada at 1-800-742-3330. A €ompleteVEA application pack- age consists of: 1. Proof of ownership (grant, bar- gain. sale deed, recorded document, etc.). 2. Right-of- way easement form signed and notarized by the property owner (seller). 3. Water well construction contract (or betterment receipt). 4. Septic system construction con- tract (or betterment receipt). 5. Plot plan. 6. Application fees that include mem- bership, deposit and connect costs. 7. Signed VEA membership applica- tion with Social Security number(s). 8. Agreement for electric service. 9. Site contact form. Direct an. questions regarding the package to either of VEA's new business representatives. VEA has historically subsidized a portion of the cost of line extensions for its members in the interests of promoting growth and economic development in VEA's service area--and in doing so, the co-op spread the cost for this subsidy to all of its existing members through its per kilowatt hour (kwh) power rates. Even with the new 150 feet reduction in free primary line extension footage, VEA will continue to subsidize the cost of 350 feet, if necessary, for new line extension to new consumers. VEA was formed in the early 1960s when VEA's service area had far fewer consumers than today, and a liberal amount of free line extension was in- centive for people to settle the area. However, consumer growth has en- abled the service area to "fill in" substan- tially. That VEA, which is a nonprofit electric cooperative, has been able to offer free line extension had to be recon- sidered in light of several factors includ- ing: the threat of deregulation in the power industry; and major project construction costs. These factors have also made it nec- essary for VEA's management and di- rectors to reconsider what the co-op charges consumers for other services, too. Line extension allowances must in- creasingly be balanced against greater installation costs for these extensions, and also anticipated power industry changes, and their financial effect on all of the co-op's consumers--because the line extension subsidy is paid for through VEA's kwh power rates For a sheet of costs of mals and construction per the revised line exten- sion rule. you may contact VEA at the phone numbers listed in the first col- umn.
