PROPOSED ELECTRIC/FIBER RATE INCREASE AND MODIFICATIONS TO ELECTRIC LIGHTING RATE SCHEDULE AND DARK FIBER SCHEDULES

The Springfield Utility Board will hold two public hearings regarding a proposal to expand SUB’s electric lighting schedules to include LED lighting and to modify SUB’s dark fiber schedule. The first public hearing will be held during the Board meeting on Wednesday, May 11, 2016, at 7:00 p.m.  No action will be taken on the electric rates at this meeting.  The Board will consider all comments made by the public during the public hearing and a second public hearing will be held on June 8, 2016.

The proposed electric rate change will include a new schedule for LED lighting services. The fiber rate change will propose an increase in dark fiber lease rates of approximately 5%, as well as a new rate for single-strand fiber. The new rate schedules will be effective on billing statements rendered on or after July 1, 2016.

Copies of the proposed lighting schedule and dark fiber rates and the supporting methodology will be available for public review prior to the public hearing:
