The Marietta Daily Journal – Commission’s oversight benefits families businesses

The inexpensive and reliable electricity that Georgians demand requires financially healthy private sector utility providers. Without a healthy balance sheet and acceptable profit margin, utilities will pay far more in financing costs and pass that along to Georgia families and businesses. Short-sighted decisions made for political gain will eventually cost Georgians more money.

Our challenge on the Public Service Commission is providing oversight that balances low rates today and in the future. A recent Politifact article finding that Georgia ratepayers have paid electric rates 10 to 15 percent lower than the national average in eight of the last nine years indicates that the Georgia Public Service Commission’s oversight benefits families and businesses.

Doug Everett is a Commissioner on the Georgia Public Service Commission.
