Originally appearing in the Chicago Star on June 23, 2023, Andrew Adams discusses recent utility rate proposals with Karen Lusson.

While gas utilities have included rate design proposals in their current rate cases, ComEd and Ameren will file electric rate design cases separately over the coming years, according to Lusson. The companies that have filed rate design cases have not gone far enough in lowering prices for low-income customers, she added.

“Each gas company has interpreted that directive a bit differently and all of them insufficient in the amount of the discount.”
