Rate Hike Still Pending

Testimony wrapped up Wednesday at the Public Service Commission about Georgia Power’s request to raise rates.

Georgia Power wants approval to charge customers another $1.2 billion over three years.

That breaks down to a $10.88 spike to the average customer’s bill each month.

Georgia Power says the money will go toward reimbursing the company for what it’s spent on pollution controls at its power plants.

The PSC will make its decision on December 16th.

If approved, customers would see the higher bills starting January 1st.
