Four More Chances To Make Your Voice Heard In Electric Utility Rate Case

Utility Bill Money Picture

Laramie, Riverton, and Casper To Host Public Comment Events

After a public comment hearing for the Public Service Commission (PSC) in Casper produced an overflow audience of ratepayers, it has become clear that Wyomingites have strong feelings on Rocky Mountain Power’s proposed rate increase.

The Governor saw it and asked the PSC to hold more public comment hearings. AARP Wyoming did the same. Now, there are three more opportunities for you to make your voice heard in this case before the PSC, as well as a chance to speak to the increase before a Legislative Subcommittee.

SIGN THE PETITION: Remember, if you can’t make any of these events, you can join the more than 1,100 Wyomingites who have signed our petition against the rate increase by clicking here.
