Me Energies: Rally For AffordableEnergy Now
Saturday, October 15, 2022
12:00 - 1:00pm
Zeidler Union Square Park
301 W Michigan St, Milwaukee ([link removed])
What is happening?
Before We Energies can increase how much it charges customers, it must get permission from the Public Service Commission (PSC), a branch of the government. They must explain how much money they need and why. The PSC asks the public and experts for input and decides how much to allow the utility to increase rates.
During 'rate cases' like these, We Energies often makes agreements with organizations that are concerned about the proposal.
What is We Energies asking for?
Increases to gas and electrical rates:
* Raise electricity revenue by 8.4%
* Raise gas revenue by 10.7%
We Energies is claiming this increase is because they are building more clean energy, but they have also announced plans to keep expensive coal plants running. Last year, they announced plans to build a new gas storage facility, even though it was proven that an energy efficiency program would have saved ratepayers money.
