Board to decide electricity increase in January

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- The Iowa Utilities Board has until January to decided if it will grant a electricity increase to Alliant Energy.

A four day hearing on the $150-million request ended Thursday.

The board is now left to consider if it will penalize the utility for going over cost on construction of a wind farm and if it will allow consumers to pay for previous investments into a now defunct generating station along with electricity hike.

The State of Iowa Consumer Advocate Office says it is concerned with long-term implications of the plan.
