Attorney General’s Office Saves $2.9 million in Proposed Utility Rate Increases 

FRANKFORT  – Attorney General Cameron today announced that intervention by his Office of Rate Intervention (ORI) before the Kentucky Public Service Commission (PSC) saved Kentuckians $2.9 million in proposed electric utility rate increases.

In December, South Kentucky Rural Electric Cooperative Corporation (South KY RECC) filed an application with the PSC requesting an $8.6 million or 7.71 percent base rate increase. If granted, South KY RECC’s request would have included an increase of 81 percent to the monthly residential customer charge.

“Our Office of Rate Intervention represented the interests of Southern Kentucky ratepayers in this case and successfully reduced increases to electric utility rates and monthly customer charges,” said Attorney General Cameron. “These efforts saved Kentuckians $2.9 million in proposed electric rate increases.”

Attorney General Cameron intervened in the case and, through the efforts of his Office, was able to reduce the proposed rate increases by $2.9 million, which is 33.9 percent less than what was requested by South KY RECCA.  

South Kentucky RECC is headquartered in Somerset, Kentucky, and distributes retail electric power to 68,000 Kentucky consumers in Adair, Casey, Clinton, Cumberland, Laurel, Lincoln, McCreary, Pulaski, Rockcastle, Russell, and Wayne Counties.
