AARP Oklahoma applauds the settlement filed today between OG&E and parties to the case, including AARP. The settlement halts a proposed $77.6 million per year rate increase, and as importantly, rejects a proposed 70 percent increase of the customer monthly charge, which is a substantial win for residential ratepayers.
According to the Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC), the application, filed by Kansas Gas Service in June, requests a $42.7 million dollar net base rate increase. If approved, the average residential customer’s natural gas bill will increase by $5.67 per month, an increase of 10 percent. A complete copy of Kansas Gas Service’s application and supporting testimony is available on the Commission’s website.
Utility bills are an important concern for older Nevadans, especially those on fixed incomes. A Nov. 6 ballot measure threatens to inject uncertainty into the market, with the prospect of rate increases, critics say.
