GOVERNOR WALKER SIGNS BILL RELATING TO RATE DISPUTES

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker has signed legislation (2017 Wisconsin Act 136) to give utilities a way to resolve disputes over their attempts to raise the rates charged to homeowners and businesses. The measure would allow a utility to reach a settlement with a group representing homeowners or businesses and then let the Public Service Commission decide on approving it. If one group of ratepayers settled with the utility and the other didn’t, the commission would have to take input from all sides but could still approve the settlement. This legislation was supported by WUI and Wisconsin utilities.

On June 15, 2017, members of the Wisconsin Utility Investors Board held  a board of director’s meeting in Chippewa Falls and toured the state’s largest hydro dam (in terms of generating capacity) at Jim Falls. The dam is an impressive engineering accomplishment, built in 1988 and functioning at full capacity today while preserving and contributing to the natural beauty, habitat and leisure access of the area. Board members were grateful to Xcel Energy for the opportunity to learn more about the powerful contribution of this hydro dam in terms of energy and preservation of our natural resources.
