Commentary: Help save us all money!
El Paso Electric (EPE) wants a humongous rate increase: initially $8.6 million, dropped to $6.4 million.
Recently, a hearing examiner's proposed decision (PD) recommended giving EPE about one-tenth of that, $640,000.
That was good. Credit intervenors, including U.S. Congressional candidate Merrie Lee Soules, One-Hour Air-Conditioning, and our City, County, and Attorney-General.
But the PD, apparently a huge victory for customers, would actually be a devastating and expensive loss if allowed to stand!
