When the Alabama Public Service Commission recently approved a new rate structure for Alabama Power -- by a 2-to-1 vote -- AARP began calling for the PSC to show us the numbers. The two commissioners voting for the new plan, Twinkle Cavanaugh and Jeremy Oden, claimed it would result in lower power bills for Alabama Power customers. Terry Dunn disagreed, voting against the new plan, and said it might even raise power bills for hardworking Alabama families.

Enough already! The Alabama Public Service Commission continues to put excessive profits before hard-working Alabamians. Just last month, the commission voted 2 – to - 1 to approve a new rate plan for Alabama Power that will do little, if anything, to lower bills.
September 11 is a national day of service for AARP and organizations across the country to honor the victims and heroes of September 11, 2001. This year, several AARP chapters and the state office staff will be participating in projects that benefit their communities.
This letter was sent to members of the Alabama Public Service Commission this week in response to their change in the way Alabama Power's profits are calculated.
