Will I have to pay more in the future on my electric bill for the hurricanes?

Beauregard Electric borrowed 96.4 million dollars to make repairs from Hurricanes Laura and Delta and has paid nearly 2 million dollars in interest, which is not reimbursable by FEMA. Because of the nearly 2 million dollars BECi is paying on interest, the electric cooperative is in the process of applying for a storm rider. Although we do not know the final amount, we anticipate the effect on your bill to be less than $5.
