PSO seeks another huge rate hike that will increase Oklahoma customer bills an average of $10 per month

Utility Rates

PSO customers could soon be facing a massive rate hike and AARP Oklahoma vows to once again fight the unfair rate hike. AARP Oklahoma State Director Sean Voskuhl issued the following statement.

“We’re currently reviewing the details of PSO’s latest utility rate hike, but from a purely price tag perspective, the amount is staggering. This request comes on the heels of OG&E’s $332.5 million rate hike request impacting 1.5 million Oklahoma residential utility customers who could potentially face more than a half-a-billion-dollar rate increase this year.

This proposal, coupled with efforts by PSO and OG&E to pursue alternative rate-making legislation, also called performance-based rates, is a one-two punch for customers. This alternative approach would result in annual utility rate increases, adding more financial stress to customers already struggling to make ends meet.

Oklahomans should not have to make the very difficult decision between eating, buying prescription drugs, or keeping the lights on and staying warm.”

AARP Oklahoma will need advocacy volunteers like you to raise your voice before OG&E raises your rate. Please sign up today and join the fight.
