AARP to hold telephone town hall to discuss utility rate increases

Telephone Town Hall Meeting | Forks Forum


Advocacy group, AARP Oklahoma plans a telephone town hall later this month to offer details about the impact of a series of utility rate increases for natural gas and electric customers.

The interactive town hall will be held Wednesday, May 31 beginning at 10 a.m. CST.

“The focus is AARP’s continued advocacy efforts at the state Capitol and the Oklahoma Corporation Commission regarding a series of utility rate increases for natural gas and electric customers,” stated the organization in its announcement.

The discussion will focus on the proposed $294 million PSO rate hike currently being heard by the Corporation Commission and participants will learn about ONG’s proposed $27.6 million which will cost customers $2.57 a month or more than $30 a year if approved. Also, on the heels of OG&E reporting record profits in 2022 of $439.5 million, OG&E indicated it might ask the Corporation Commission for another rate hike this year.

The panelists for the interactive town hall include Sean Voskuhl, AARP Oklahoma State Director, and Deborah Thompson, AARP Oklahoma utility attorney. They will field questions from telephone town hall participants and respond to Facebook comments and questions.
