Colorado legislators explore rising utility profits and soaring consumer bills

Why Your Electricity Bills Keep Rising (and what you can do about it)


A special legislative committee exploring increased utility bills in Colorado recently held its first meeting in an attempt to learn more about the issue.

“We have all heard from our constituents that their utility bills have gotten out of control,” said Senate President Steve Fenberg during a recent  hearing for the Joint Select Committee on Rising Utility Rates.

He and others on the select committee want to know why profits for the utilities are reaching record levels while a record number of their ratepayers are filing requests for energy assistance according to a report by Colorado Newsline.
