Public Meeting Concerning Vectren Rate Hike

Officials with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC) announced the agency will conduct a public field hearing on the Vectren request on April 14 at the Old National Events Plaza, 715 Locust Street. The hearing will begin at 6 p.m. local time. You can read the article here Vectren Rate Hike Meeting.

The meeting will be held Monday, April 14, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. at the Old National Bank in downtown Evansville.

If you can't make it, at least read the articles below. I wrote a blog on the unusually high rate those in this area pay for electricity (I'd Like An Answer, Too), that references this article ... It is Time for Vectren to Explain Why SW Indiana is an Island of-Exorbitant Electricity Rates.

Written comments received by the close of business on April 21 will be filed with the Commission and included in the formal record. Comments should include your name, address, and a reference to IURC Cause No. 44429. If enough people submit their concerns, perhaps we can stop this rate hike. You can submit comments a variety of ways:

I have a few questions I'd like to ask them ...
  1. How is it that other utility companies can deliver the same service for a third of the cost of Vectren?
  2. Did Vectren give any bonuses in the last ten years?
  3. If money is so tight, how do you justify the cost of the new building?
  4. How often do Vectren employees get raises? A lot of people in the area are unemployed, under-employed, or not getting raises at their current job., and I for one am not willing to pay more for electric services to pay for raises when we our utility rates are already ridiculously high.
I hope you will go to the meeting or voice your complaints to the Office of the Utility Consumer Counselor.
