The Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) is currently considering a proposal from Peoples Gas that would raise natural gas rates for residential customers like you by over $402 million next year!
The proposed increase will raise charges for Peoples Gas customers by almost $12 each month, or about $142 a year.
The new rate proposal also increases the monthly customer charge – the amount charged even before a customer turns on their stove or heater – from $30 to $44 a month, nearly 45% more than customers are being charged now.
AARP is fighting against Peoples Gas’s proposal to raise your rates. As a formal intervenor with the ICC on behalf of Illinois residents 50 plus, we will oppose rate increases that benefit Peoples Gas’ bottom line on the backs of customers like you.
But we need your help. Sign the petition to oppose the Peoples Gas proposal to raise natural gas rates for residential customers by $402 million in 2024.
