Rate increase notification


 Waterloo Water and Light Commission has filed an application with the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSC) to increase electric rates. The adjustment is necessary in order to cover inflationary increases in operation and maintenance expenses that will allow the utility to continue providing reliable and quality service to our customers.  The last electric rate increase was approved in March 2021.

 The utility is requesting an overall increase above the electric utility’s present revenues of 9.35%, or $402,819.  This request is detailed in Waterloo Water and Light Commission’s electric rate application submitted to the PSCW on November 9, 2023.  After review, Commission staff proposed a revised increase in rates of $359,680 or 8.35%. The actual change to individual customers will vary with electricity usage, class of service and the ultimate rates authorized by the Commission.  If the application is approved by the PSCW, per staff recommendation, the average residential customer using 663 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity per month will see a monthly increase of approximately $9.22, or 10.4%. 

 An audiovisual hearing on the application has been scheduled for Tuesday, April 9, 2024, at 10:00 a.m. (CDT).  This virtual hearing has no physical location at PSCW’s office in Madison, WI.  Members of the public may attend by internet or telephone or listen to the live broadcast on the PSCW’s website at http://psc.wi.gov under the “PSC Live Broadcast” button.
