Current base rates for the City of Auburn's municipal electric utility were approved in 1989. In the IURC's most recent survey of residential electric rates, Auburn Municipal Utility rates ranked lowest among the 14 electric utilities under IURC jurisdiction.
The city is seeking an electric base rate increase in IURC Cause No. 44472. It filed its petition (7 pages) and testimony (182 pages) on March 27, 2014. The OUCC is reviewing the request and will file testimony on a future date to be determined.
Auburn and other electric utilities are also allowed to adjust rates periodically through IURC proceedings, to recover wholesale power and fuel costs on a dollar-for-dollar basis.
This page will be updated based on future developments.
