W,G&L looking at rate changes

October 29, 2004

Albany-- The Water, Gas and Light Commission is considering a rate change, but you shouldn't have to pay much more.

The power company hasn't changed the design of its rates since 1988.

The proposal doesn't show any dramatic fluctuations in how much people will pay for electricity. Fiscal Director John Vansant says, "The revenue to our commission will not change, it is just that some customers will get a rate increase, some types of customers will get rate decreases."

The proposal calls for an overall decrease in winter time rates and an increase in summer time rates, when usage is highest.

But, Water, Gas and Light will not make any more money from this deal.

In fact, if a customer uses the same amount of power year to year, what they pay overall shouldn't change, though your monthly bills could fluctuate.

If the proposal passes, if will take effect in January.
