Members of the public, small business owners, local elected officials, and community leaders need to weigh in on Central Hudson’s proposed rate plan. Otherwise, the only points of view the PSC will be hearing come from big corporations and the utility itself.

 

UTILITY rate plan BASICS

Although Central Hudson is a private monopoly that owns and operates our electric and gas distribution system, it is considered a public utility so it’s regulated by the PSC to ensure it serves the public interest. Public utilities must submit a rate plan to get PSC approval of:

  • how much money they can charge customers,
  • what they can spend that money on, and
  • how the rates will be set for each type of customer (residential, small commercial, large industrial, etc.)
