Breaking: Peoples Gas ruling tomorrow?

Citizens Utility Board 30th Anniversary CitizensUtility Board

Dear Maryellen,

The Peoples Gas pipe replacement program could be the biggest train wreck of 2015.

Projected costs have reportedly doubled—to $4.6 billion—in five years. That could cause our gas rates to double over the next decade.

State regulators could decide tomorrow whether to make a recent audit of the program public. As an out-of-state company (Wisconsin Energy) tries to buy Peoples Gas, those audit findings could help consumer advocates force the companies to fix this mess as a condition of the purchase.

Please, tell the Illinois Commerce Commission: Make the audit public!
