Utility Rate Hike Denied

INDIANAPOLIS — The gas and electric company can’t raise your rates to make up for their losses from the pandemic. The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission has unanimously rejected 10 utilities’ request for a rate hike to offset their losses during Indiana’s lockdown. The commission says unless utilities are literally in danger of shutting down, it’s not customers’ job to protect their bottom line. Indianapolis Representative Cherrish Pryor (D) says it would have been “absurd” to bill customers for power they never used.
