Public Service Commission acts quickly to hear request to reduce SCE&G customers’ rates

The SC Public Service Commission will hold a special meeting September 28, 2017, to hear a staff presentation regarding the Office of Regulatory Staff’s (ORS) request for Rate Relief, a petition filed yesterday asking that SCE&G should suspend the collection of electricity rate increases under the Base Load Review Act since 2009. Those rate increases have added up to about 18% of SCE&G customers’ utility bills.

This public special meeting will be held in the Hearing Room of the Public Service Commission of South Carolina, 101 Executive Center Drive, Saluda Building, in Columbia.

The South Carolina Small Business Chamber of Commerce submitted a letter of support for the ORS petition yesterday.
