The Arizona Corporation Commission will hold a series of Public Comment Meetings regarding the settlement in the Arizona Public Service Company (APS) rate case.
The agreement includes a rate hike of $6 per month for the average customer instead of the $11 it was originally seeking.
APS filed its rate case in June. Thirty of the 40 parties, including Corporation Commission Staff and the Residential Utility Consumer Office (RUCO) agreed to the settlement terms .The agreement still requires a vote by the Commissioners.
A vote will take place after public comment hearings and hearings before an Administrative Law Judge allowing stakeholders and interveners to weigh in on the settlement terms.
The next Public Comment Hearing will take place Wednesday, March 29, in Clarkdale, at Yavapai College's Verde Campus, 601 Black Hills Drive, Building M, in Clarkdale, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Although the Arizona Corporation Commission stated future meetings would be posted on the website at www.azcc.gov under Open Meeting Calendar and Agendas, this meeting has not yet been noticed.
