Proposed in rate hike angers Small utilities by Nancy Stevens Gazette staff writer Utility rate increases always prompt complaints but an approximate 80 percent rate hike proposed by Iowa electric Light and Power co. For its wholesale customers prompts disbelief and a willingness to fight. John Miller of the Iowa defense group represents the 28 Small towns and two cooperatives affected by the proposed in increase. He said in representatives told the group in november that the increase request would be submitted to the Federal Energy regulatory commission in december but the company has Given the group no further details. In vice president Horace Webb told the Gazette the exact amount of the increase has yet to be determined but that an increase is More than fair when wholesale customers of in can afford to charge retail customers lower rates than in charges its own retail customers. Webb said the proposed rate increase would bring the company approximately $8.2 million in added Revenue. Miller who manages the Eldridge Utility said the defense group will fight in for a More Quot reasonable Quot yes some of us can charge lower rates to customers but that is because we Arentt paying profits to investors. We make Only 1 cent per kilowatt hour and that Money goes for maintenance and operation a Miller said. The affected cooperatives the Amana society and the Farmers electric cooperative in Kalona. Eastern Iowa towns affected include Dysart Earlville Eldridge Hopkin ton Maquoketa Preston Tipton Traer Vinton West Liberty and Long Grove. Miller said the Small utilities done to question Iowa electrics right to recover costs but claim such a huge increase is too much to Swallow. Quot we should be Able to buy electricity at 1 cent a kilowatt below what we sell it for but this will make that impossible a Miller claims. Miller said the group would prefer a surcharge imposed Only when in is forced to buy Power from outside sources rather than a permanent rate increase. If the proposed in hike is implemented Miller said the Small utilities would be forced to ask for their own rate hikes and such requests probably be considered before the Iowa Commerce commission before the in rate would take effect. Webb said the increase would not be imposed All at once but rather one increase would go into effect in late january followed by a second increase six months later. Quot i know it sounds like a lot but the fact is that the rates we be been charging for three years quite Low. We re just catching up a Webb said adding that the proposal will be filed with the Federal Agency sometime Between dec. 15 and dec. 20. With this _ on your card Auto banking a not hard.
