APS wants rate hike

Arizona Public Service customers should expect to see nearly a one percent increase in their rates by the year’s end. APS President and Chief Operating Officer Donald Robinson said the increase was needed for the company to keep up with rising fuel costs and capital improvement projects. The state’s largest utility supplier hopes the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC), which sets rates for public utilities, will approve an increase in the company’s base rate of $265.5 million. This translates to a .9 percent increase per user. If it passes, customers could see an increase by December.
