Oklahoma Gas & Electric (OG&E) has asked the Oklahoma Corporation Commission for a $73 million rate increase. This will equate to a $6.50 increase for residential customers per month.

AARP believes Oklahomans deserve a rate decrease – not an increase.
An electric rate increase could force Oklahoma seniors to choose between food, medications and electricity. Based on a recent AARP survey, we know that nearly half of Oklahomans surveyed are having trouble paying their monthly utility bills.
Additionally, 43% say their electric bill has gone up in the past 12 months.
For the past six years, AARP Oklahoma has been fighting to stop unfair utility bill increases so you can keep more of the money you’ve earned. AARP members successfully stopped legislation in 2011 that would have passed the cost of utility projects onto consumers, who would have had to pay higher rates for plants that haven’t even been built.
AARP needs your help again to stop the OG&E Rate Hike.
The Corporation Commission is set to hear OG&E's rate increase request beginning December 13th. Sign our petition below tell Commissioners you want a rate decrease, not an increase.
Tell Corporation Commissioners how a higher electric bill would affect you and your family.
