DEMCO serves about 12,000 customers in Ascension Parish and about 96,000 in seven parishes overall, according to its Web site.
Bradley said DEMCO is eligible for FEMA Public Assistance funding because it is a not-for-profit entity.
The public assistance dollars pay for debris removal, emergency protective measures and rebuilding government and certain nonprofit facilities, FEMA and LRA officials said.
In all, Bradley said, DEMCO spent $35 million after Gustav, with FEMA expected to cover 90 percent of that cost.
Ratepayers will pay off the rest with a "storm rate rider" that took effect Oct. 1 after the Louisiana Public Service Commission approval in September, DEMCO officials said in a news release Tuesday.
The rider, which costs about $1 per 1,400 kilowatt hours of use, is also paying for damage caused by the Baton Rouge-area snowstorms last year, DEMCO officials said.
All told, the rider will pay off $4.7 million in repair costs from both storms in 2008 and stay on customer's bills for 53 months, Bradley said.
