State Rep. Cherrish Pryor (D-Indianapolis) – along with Reps. Vanessa Summers (D-Indianapolis), John Bartlett (D-Indianapolis), Gregory W. Porter (D-Indianapolis), Robin Shackleford (D-Indianapolis) and State Sens. Jean Breaux (D-Indianapolis) and Andrea Hunley (D-Indianapolis) – recently sent a letter to Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission Chairman Jim Huston urging him to deny requests from the Indiana Power & Light Company’s (AES Indiana) proposal to increase fees and charges for electric utility service.

The proposed increase would bring the average Hoosier’s monthly bill to $149.05. Further, AES is proposing to increase their monthly fixed charge to $25 – one of the highest in the country – for larger energy consumers.

“When so many Hoosiers are already struggling to make ends meet and put food on the table for their families, it is outrageous that AES is proposing a 13.2% rate hike,” Pryor said.

“The Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission will host a public hearing at 6 p.m. on Oct. 2 at the New Augusta Public Academy North, 6450 Rodebaugh Rd., in my district to discuss the rate hike. I encourage every Indianapolis resident to attend the meeting to voice their concerns, comments and ask questions.”
