WPSC agreed to electric freeze rate


Wisconsin Public Service Corp. has agreed to freeze electric rates and slightly decrease gas rates next year.

The Citizens Utility Board and the Wisconsin Industrial Energy Group opposed a proposed 9 percent increase in electric rates and a nearly 4 percent gas rate the Green Bay utility proposed earlier this year.

WPSC says the freeze is possible by increased electric sales, decreased fuel costs and retaining a $19 million refund to customers. The utility is expecting approval from state regulators within six weeks.
