Hydro One and Avista Mutually Agree to Terminate Merger Agreement

April 4, 2018 •  Hydro One, Avista, CBJ reach settlement agreement:

Information about the Hydro One and Avista Corp. merger, and what it means for AEL&P.

In 2014, AEL&P was acquired by Avista Corp. On July 20th, 2017, Avista Corp. announced they will join forces with Hydro One, one of the best-managed electric transmission and distribution utilities in North America.

Will this affect you as an AEL&P customer? The short answer is that it won’t. It will be business as usual for AEL&P and our customers.

A few keys things to know:

    • The rates that you pay as an AEL&P customer will NOT change as a result of this transaction.
    • AEL&P’s day to day operations and employee structure will not change as a result of this transaction.
    • AEL&P will continue to operate as an independent company, just as it has since being acquired by Avista Corp. 3 years ago, and for the 121 years prior to that.
    • AEL&P will continue to be regulated by the Regulatory Commission of Alaska (RCA).
