Represent the Interests of Alabama Consumers Before the PSC

The Alabama Public Service Commission (PSC) has not held a publicly contested, formal investigative hearing on the rates Alabama Power charges its customers for electricity in 30 years. As a result, Alabama Power’s monopoly has gone unchecked. The lack of oversight has led to Alabama Power customers paying some of the highest bills in the nation while allowing the company to earn some of the highest profits.

We call on Attorney General Luther Strange and Assistant Attorney General Olivia Martin to vigorously represent the best interests of Alabama consumers before the Public Service Commission.

The health and economic wellbeing of Alabama’s residents depends on affordable electricity. It is the PSC’s duty to provide fair and open processes by which consumers can be assured they are protected from unreasonable prices.

Letter to
Alabama Attorney General
Alabama Assistant Attorney General
As you know, it has been 30 years since the Alabama Public Service Commission has held formal investigative hearings into Alabama Power’s electricity rates.

As a result, Alabama Power’s monopoly has gone unchecked. The lack of oversight has led to customers paying some of the highest bills in the nation while allowing the company to earn some of the highest profits, 30–40 percent above the industry average.

Please, as my representative before the commission, defend my best interests, and the interests of other Alabama consumers, during the PSC's public meeting on July 17. My health and economic wellbeing depend on affordable electricity and a transparent energy-planning process.
