Despite PSC Vote, Ala. Power Rates to Remain Flat

Despite PSC Vote, Ala. Power Rates to Remain Flat

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, Ala. -

Alabama Power Co. predicts that its rates will remain level through 2014, despite the forecast of consumer savings when the state's utility regulatory board approved a new rate plan.

 

The Public Service Commission voted 2-1 last month to revise its rate stabilization plan for Alabama Power. Commission President Twinkle Cavanaugh forecast the change would result in annual savings for consumers of $30 to $110.

 

Alabama Power says the modification will not result in any immediate reduction in customer bills, but it is expected to put downward pressure on rates over the long run. Alabama Power says it expects its base rate to remain level through 2014.

 

AARP is asking the PSC to reconsider its decision. It says rates should be lowered. Alabama Power says the request is without merit.
