Anchorage, Alaska (KINY) The Anchorage Assembly audit claims a Kenai Peninsula power plant owned by the state overpaid for commuter flights
Anchorage's Municipal Light & Power buys electricity from the Bradley Lake Hydro Project, near Homer. The audit reviewed a contract that provides funds for workers to be flown to the power plant. The audit found the contract paid a fixed rate for double the flight hours actually used by workers. The cost was then passed on to wholesale electricity customers like ML&P.
The aviation contract is up for renewal next year.
