Jackson Energy Granted Revenue Increase BY PSC
Jackson Energy customers will see a $2 per month increase on their electric bills beginning in April as a result of a recent decision by the Kentucky Public Service Commission. The revenue increase is the first for Jackson Energy since 2008. The increase is only in the monthly customer charge and does not affect the kilowatt-hour charge. This is the first revenue adjustment in more than five years. Jackson Energy management made cuts to the operating budget, reduced the number of employees, and took other cost-saving measures before filing a case with the PSC, which reviews and sets all rates or revenue increases. “We felt a cost adjustment that would not impact electric usage, which is often determined by weather, was the best solution for Jackson Energy and our members,” says Jackson Energy President & CEO Carol Wright. “This will result in just over a 5% increase in revenue for Jackson Energy, and our members will know in advance exactly how much the charge will be each month on the bill.”
