Indianapolis, In. — Back in 2012 the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission gave the South Eastern Indiana Natural Gas Company approval to increase their base distribution rates.The pending request would raise its flat, monthly customer charge from $11.00 to $13.00 for residential customers and from $11.00 to $24.00 for small commercial customers. The impact on specific bills will vary by usage, with the utility requesting an overall rate increase of 17.8 percent.The proposed increase, in this case, would only apply to the utility’s base distribution rates, which currently comprise approximately 65 percent of a typical residential natural gas customer’s monthly heating bill. Base distribution rates cover “non-gas” expenses such as capital improvements and the costs of operations and maintenance.Along with its legal and technical review, the Indiana Office of the Utility Consumer Counselor is encouraging written consumer comments through March 21, 2018.Mail:Consumer Services StaffIndiana Office of Utility Consumer Counselor115 W.
