PSC approves conservation plans, surcharge changes

Residential customers of Louisville Gas & Electric Co. and Kentucky Utilities Co. will find some rate changes as a result of an order from the Kentucky Public Service Commission.

The PSC on Tuesday approved revised surcharges and authorized the utilities to expand residential and commercial energy conservation and efficiency programs.

The expansion involves the continuation of 10 programs and addition of three. One will pay customers $30 for each old refrigerator or freezer they allow the utilities to remove and recycle. The second provides incentives for replacing old appliances with more efficient models.

The PSC says the surcharge changes will amount to reductions in some cases and increases in others.
