APS facing major backlash over rate hike
Nov. 14, 2017
Arizona Public Service Co.’s scheduled rate increase went into effect last August, but customers are reporting much higher bills than what the power company promised.
When state utility regulators approved the rate increase, APS projected an average increase of $6 to their customer’s electric bill. However, customers are now reporting increases as high as $50, and are looking for a way to reverse the rate increase.
Arizona Republic reporter Ryan Randazzo, who has been following the rate increase since it was initially proposed, says it is possible for citizens to petition the Corporation Commission a rehearing, but unlikely that the request will be granted.
