The ACC is meeting on Monday to discuss Arizona Public Service's request for a rate hike
PHOENIX, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - On Monday, February 1, 2021, the Arizona Corporation Commission will be meeting at the capitol to discuss Arizona Public Service's request for a rate hike.
According to the Arizona Public Interest Research Group APS is requesting a 5% rate increase that would net them approximately $169 million. Executive Director for PIRG Diane Brown says the utility giant should care more about their customers rather than their shareholders.
"Their current opportunity to save money is a five-hour window which is not practical for households with children learning from home and parents working from home and needing to use a number of appliances," said Diane Brown PIRG Executive Director.
