PSO Asks to Recover 2010 Ice Storm Costs (Apr 07, 2011)

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma Corporation Commission has scheduled a June 2 hearing on Public Service Company of Oklahoma's request to bill customers for two years to recover the costs from the 2010 ice storm.

The Tulsa World reports that PSO is asking for a 24-month rider on utility bills. The company says the bill of an average customer would go about 85 cents per month.

PSO says it spent about $17 million to recover from the January 2010 ice storm that knocked out power to about 68,000 customers. Most of the outages were in western Oklahoma. PSO spokesman Stan Whiteford said 116 miles of power lines were brought down during the storm.

The rider could begin showing up on August bills and continue until July 2013 if it's approved by the commission.
