Alabama Power customers pay some of the highest bills in the South, and AARP Alabama is working to lower them. Now you can get involved.iStock_UtilityWires.000016702791SmallJoin us and other AARP members tonight in Tuscaloosa at a town hall meeting with the Alabama Public Service Commission. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. at the University of Alabama School of Law Moot Court Room, 101 Paul W. Bryant Drive, Tuscaloosa.

Around the country, utility companies earn an average of 10 percent profit. That profit, called “return on equity,” is the profit after operating expenses and salaries have been paid. Alabama Power is allowed to earn 13 to 14.5 percent profit, which comes out of family budgets and goes into the pockets of stockholders.

Join us tonight in Tuscaloosa to tell the Alabama Public Service Commission it’s time to bring those profits in line with the rest of the country.
