Today, in Cause No. 38705-FAC 55, the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission approved a request by the Logansport Electric Utility to change its fuel cost charge for July, August and September 2002.
The average customer, using 1,000 kWh per month, should experience an increase of $1.67 per month on his or her electric bill. This is a 2.7% increase.
Evidence submitted in this case supports the company’s claim that Logansport Electric has made every reasonable effort to provide electricity to its retail customers at the lowest fuel cost reasonably possible. Logansport Electric is still operating under restraints from the Environmental Protection Agency and must purchase coal with low sulphur content. The company says this has increased costs.
Logansport Electric serves nearly 13,000 residential and business customers.
