Austin Energy Rate Increase

Council Member Sheryl Cole is holding a forum on the Austin Energy Rate Increase Proposal on Saturday January 28th. There will be two sessions, one at 9:30 and one at 11:30. This event is at Austin Community College (ACC) Riverside. See flyer attached.

With Council Member Cole will be Phillip Schmandt, the Chairman of the Electric Utility Commission (EUC). He and three other EUC members – Michael Webber, Steve Smaha, and Bernie Bernfeld voted to support the Austin Energy proposal.

If you disagree with a $22 monthly charge and having residential customers pick up most of the tab while the largest customers pay nothing this is a good opportunity to state your opposition. We are also hoping to expand the Customer Assistance Program (CAP) eligibility to customers on SNAP and to have Austin Energy automatically enroll customers in the program. This forum is a place to be heard if you support change in CAP or anything other changes at Austin Energy.

Next month the Electric Utility Commission which Mr. Schmandt chairs will be discussing problems with the Austin Energy billing system. Therefore, if you are having problems with your AE electric bills, this forum is the place to be heard.

As always please feel free to share this information with others who may be interested in having it.
