Judge Recommends Approval of PSO Recovery (Jun 02, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A judge has recommended approval of Public Service Company of Oklahoma's plan to recover $17.4 million in costs associated with an ice storm that knocked out power to more than 68,000 customers in southwestern Oklahoma.

A tentative agreement between PSO and the Corporation Commission's staff, the Attorney General's Office and consumer groups was approved Thursday by administrative law judge Maribeth Snapp. It still must be approved by the commission.

If approved, residential electrical rates will increase an average of 78 cents a month for 24 months beginning in the first billing cycle of August.

PSO spokesman Stan Whiteford says the Jan. 28, 2010, storm toppled 116 miles of distribution lines in the region. Whiteford says PSO had to replace 2,100 utility poles as well as 970,000 feet of distribution lines.
