A “standby and supplementary power service” customer would see a 29 percent decrease in their monthly bill from $208,835 to $147,967.

The Iowa Utilities Board will review the requested increases within 10 months and establish final rates which may be different than the rates proposed by the company.

In addition to setting the rate, the IUB also will determine when final rates will become effective.

Customers can object to the proposed increase with the IUB and request a public hearing. Written objections or requests can be submitting online to the IUB at efs.,by emailing customer@iub. iowa.govor mailing Iowa Utilities Board, 1375 E. Court Ave., Des Moines, IA 50319.

Customer comments

Customer comment meetings on the rate increases are being held throughout the state.

Thursday, May 2, a customer comment meeting is scheduled at 6 p. m. at the Hotel Winneshiek in Decorah.

The IUB is encouraging customers to attend the meetings because they provide the best opportunity to provide feedback directly to the Board and other parties involved in the rate case.
