Alabama Power Rates
Tue July 16, 2013
Groups Recommending Changes In Alabama Power Rates
Some groups will call for rate changes for Alabama Power Co. when the state's utility regulatory board wraps up hearings Wednesday on the state's largest electric utility.
AARP and Alabama Arise have filed position papers saying the current rate structure is too favorable to the company. Alabama Power says the rate structure is fair and reasonable, and it allows the company to provide a reliable product despite residential demand that is higher than the national average.
Wednesday's hearing is the last in a series the Alabama Public Service Commission has been holding on whether to change its rate stabilization plan for Alabama Power. Commission members could make a decision in September. Any rate change would take effect in December.
