Hearings to Begin on Proposed Georgia Power Rate Increase

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA, GA -

Are you ready to see your power bill go up? Well, if Georgia Power has its way you could see an increase larger than what is traditionally allowed. 

Georgia Power filed a request on June 28, 2013 with the Public Service Commission to increase its base rates. According to the Company's filing, its traditional rate case would be an annual increase of $280 million, which would mean a monthly increase of approximately $4.55 for the average residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours.

The Company has proposed that, instead of a traditional rate case, the Commission approve a three-year Alternative Rate Plan with a one-time annual increase in its retail rates of $482 million. This request, if approved, would be approximately a $7.84 monthly increase for the average residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours.

Before any decisions are made, the Commission will hold a round of hearings. The first one takes place on October 1st. The public is invited to voice their comments beginning at 9 a.m. and again beginning at 9 a.m. on Wednesday October 2, 2013. All hearings will take place in Room 110 at 244 Washington Street, S.W., Atlanta, Georgia.

The audio web cast of the hearing is will be available on the Commission website, http://www.psc.state.ga.us under the Audio Broadcast link.
