SPRINGFIELD UTILITY BOARD PROPOSED ELECTRIC RATE INCREASE AND MODIFICATIONS TO ELECTRIC RATE SCHEDULES

The Springfield Utility Board will hold two public hearings regarding a proposal to increase SUB’s overall electric rate design, due to increased power costs. The first public hearing was held during the Board meeting on Wednesday, February 10, 2016, at 7:00 p.m.  The Board will consider all comments made by the public during that public hearing and a second public hearing that will be held on March 16, 2016.

The proposed rate increase, expected to be 3.0 percent, if approved at the March 16 Board meeting, will be effective on billing statements rendered on or after April 1, 2016, for schedules R-1, GP-1, GS-1, GS-2, GS-3, L-1, L-2, and L-3, as and for the rates to be charged for electric supply and service upon the system of the Springfield Utility Board.

Copies of the proposed electric rate increase and the supporting methodology will be available for public review prior to the public hearing.
