MPU Files Application to Decrease Electric Rates
Manitowoc Public Utilities (MPU) announced that it has filed a request with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSCW) on May 1, 2019 to decrease retail electric rates by approximately five percent.
MPU CEO & General Manager Nilaksh Kothari said, “This is the fourth consecutive electric rate decrease for the City of Manitowoc. MPU continues to reap the benefits of operational efficiencies and power supply market strategies.” MPU’s last three rate decreases were three and one half percent (3.5%) in October 2016, two percent (2.0%) in July of 2014 and four percent (4.0%) in May of 2009. Upon approval from the PSCW, the average residential customer using 650 kWh of energy per month will see an approximate reduction in their bill from $70.19 to $66.68, or $3.51 per month.
The PSCW will review the filing over the next several months and develop rates by each customer class. It is anticipated MPU will receive the final approval from the PSCW in the 4th quarter of 2019 with rates effective within 30 days of approval.
