OGE seeks nearly 14% rate hike for residential customers



Days after Oklahoma Attorney General Gentner Drummond boasted how he helped bring lower utility rates for customers of OG&E and Public Service Company of Oklahoma, OGE made it known it was asking regulators for approval of a $332 million rate hike annually.

AARP Oklahoma state director Sean Voskuhl might have put it best.

“Happy New Year 2024 unless you are an OG& E customer. On the heels of back-to-back-to-back rate hikes, OG& E is again back at the trough,” he told the Oklahoma Voice.

If Oklahoma Corporation Commissioners approve the rate hike request,it would mean a monthly increase of $19.02 for residential customers, or another 13.85%.
