Arkansas Regulators Approve New Rates For OG&E


OG&E, a subsidiary of OGE Energy Corp., says the Arkansas Public Service Commission has approved an order granting OG&E a general rate increase of $8.8 million, enabling the company to begin recovering the cost of significant electric system expansions and upgrades.

For a residential customer using 1,000 kWh per month, the increase will be $2.32 per month. OG&E says the rate order affirms the company's investments in electric infrastructure including high-voltage transmission lines and wind energy.

OG&E serves more than 785,000 electric customers in a service area spanning 30,000 square miles, including about 66,000 customers in western Arkansas.
