2023 Rate Request Community Input Working Group
Purpose of the 2023 Rate Request Community Input Working Group
The purpose of the Community Input Working Group is to offer feedback to CPS Energy management on specific matters pertaining to the utility’s 2023 rate request through a series of meetings open to the public. The proposed Board Resolution establishing the Working Group also provides for its natural expiration upon completion of its mission.
The Board of Trustees will receive a summary of the Working Group’s feedback (survey results) and actions taken by CPS Energy to address the input during rate request discussions.
The Working Group shall provide its input no later than November 2023.
