Central Hudson (Fortis) has proposed a new rate plan for 2017-2018 that contains a number of questionable spending items and calls for an increase in fixed charges to customers—already the highest in the state—as well as a new type of residential customer charge. The Public Service Commission is holding two public hearings on this plan at Kingston City Hall, Council Chambers, on Tuesday, October 10. Information sessions begin at 2 pm and 6 pm, followed by public hearings at 3 pm and 7 pm.
We need to fill the room and make our voices heard!
Please help spread the word! A big turnout at these hearings will send a powerful message to Central Hudson and the PSC.
Listen here to the WAMC coverage of the first public hearing, held in Poughkeepsie on October 3rd.
