AARP Oklahoma issued a statement regarding the Oklahoma Corporation Commission ruling regarding Oklahoma Gas & Electric’s (OG&E) rate case. AARP Oklahoma believes the ruling will put further financial pressure on older Oklahomans on fixed incomes.
AARP Oklahoma State Director Sean Voskuhl said, “AARP Oklahoma is extremely disappointed with today’s ruling by the majority of Oklahoma’s Corporation Commissioners which forces more than 870,000 Oklahomans to pick up the tab for all the costs from the February 2020 storm while OG&E pocketed $224 million in profit last quarter alone. Residential customers deserved a better deal.
OG&E has already filed for yet another rate increase in 2022. Our hope is that our elected Corporation Commissioners will right this wrong and with the next rate case require OG&E to use some of their profits to lower rates. We also hope the Attorney General’s office gets to the bottom of who priced gouged Oklahoma and makes sure they are held accountable.
AARP Oklahoma will continue, as we always have, to fight to ensure Oklahoma ratepayers get a fair deal.”
