For nearly a year, the Alabama Public Service Commission (PSC) held informal meetings to look into the rates and profits of Alabama Gas, Alabama Power and Mobile Gas. The result: Back-room deals between the PSC and the monopoly utility companies that continue to put massive profits before people – and leave Alabamians to pay the price.
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.
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.
