Minnesota’s attorney general is renewing a call for legislation to block utility companies from temporarily hiking their rates while they wait for state approval of permanent rate increases.
For most businesses, supply and demand rules the day. But utilities like Xcel Energy encourage their customers to conserve. Then when energy use is down, they ask the Public Utilities Commission for a rate increase.
Xcel Energy says power has been restored to nearly all customers following Friday’s fierce storms.
In a new case about climate change, the Supreme Court will hear an appeal from electric utilities that are trying to short-circuit an effort by states to force cuts in power plant emissions.
The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin is planning to hold public hearings in Eau Claire and Madison to consider Northern States Power Company’s request to raise electric rates.
