Electricity bills are coming down by less than $1 for a typical Georgia Power residential customer. The state's Public Service Commission on Tuesday approved a reduction in fuel costs by a four-to-one vote. That reduction is slight since customers saw their bills increase more than $14 a month starting this year.
Georgia Power is asking the state Public Service Commission to reduce the fuel charges it passes along to customers. Georgia Power said Tuesday it's proposing the $43 million annual cut because its costs for fueling electric-generating plants dropped. The company says the reduction would save a typical residential customer about 64 cents a month.
