general electricIn a state that has not undergone a formal utility rate review in 30 years, AARP is speaking out for such a review.

Earlier this year, informal Public Service Commission meetings allowed consumers to offer input and ask questions about Mobile Gas Co. rates. Those meetings have been expanded through November to include Alabama Power Co. and Alabama Gas Corp.

The meetings were scheduled in response to PSC Commissioner Terry Dunn’s call for formal hearings on utility rates. AARP has joined his effort to hold companies accountable and to find out if utility customers are paying too much.

To learn more about the issue or to attend one of the meetings with other AARP members, check this page regularly for updates on where and when.
