Proposal to freeze rates for two more years

Good news! We want to freeze your base rates through the end of 2019. You would pay the same base rate you’ve been paying since 2016. That means four years without an increase!

We’re asking the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSCW) to approve our plan, which would benefit our more than 1 million customers.

We also are asking the PSCW to let us extend a pricing program that has helped businesses expand their operations. The program has already helped create more than 2,000 Wisconsin jobs. Now, we want to make that program permanent.

Companies across our service area are in favor of a rate freeze and the expansion of pricing programs that have helped them grow. We’ve also received positive feedback from legislative leaders and organizations such as the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce (MMAC) and Waukesha County Business Alliance.

We’re hopeful that the PSCW will approve this settlement – including a base rate freeze – which is in everyone’s best interest.
