Recently, the Georgia Public Service Commission (GPSC) approved Atlanta Gas Light's (AGL) request to increase rates by approximately $26 million.
The increase stands to add $1.14 to a typical residential gas bill, but because a decrease to one of AGL's surcharges has also taken effect, the result is a 90 cents net increase for typical consumers.
New rates and surcharges went into effect Nov. 1, 2010.
Walton EMC Natural Gas must pass on to its customers these changes approved by the GPSC on to its customers, but will not gain from the rate increase.
