AEP / Fixed Rate Hikes

AEP proposes 120 percent increase to fixed fees on Ohio customers’ bills

COLUMBUS — “The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) held a public hearing in Columbus Monday on AEP Ohio’s proposal to increase the customers’ fixed fees 120 percent.

The fixed charge, or ‘customer charge,’ is a portion of the electric bill consumers pay regardless what volume of electricity they use.

None of the customers who spoke during this hearing were for this proposal because the 120 percent increase will add about $10 per month on your bill.

Low and fixed income residents like Matthew Crouch says that’s too much for them.”
