Tell the Public Service Commission: Northern Kentucky Deserves Better

All Kentuckians, no matter our zip code or how much money we make, deserve affordable and clean energy.

Yet monopoly utility Duke Energy is trying to raise our rates again, and they’re trying to charge us more no matter how much energy we use. Unless the KY Public Service Commission hears from us, Duke might increase their average monthly bill for ordinary Northern Kentuckians by over $15.

Duke also wants to increase the fixed monthly charge part of our bill by so much that it will have jumped 211% between 2017 to 2020! Changes like this will make it difficult for households to manage bills by conserving energy or investing in energy efficiency or rooftop solar.

If you get your electricity from Duke Energy, make sure you take a moment this week to submit a written comment to the KY Public Service Commission, asking them to deny Duke's proposal for higher rates.
