Connections: The RG&E rate hike

RG&E has asked for permission to raise rates. That request goes through the New York State Public Service Commission, which will hold a public hearing in Rochester on August 6. A number of stakeholders plan on attending the hearing, offering their views on RG&E’s rates, but also on energy policy more generally. RG&E has provided a statement to WXXI News.

We discuss what the rates mean with our guests:
