HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) today voted to suspend and investigate a general base rate increase request by Leatherstocking Gas Company LLC (Leatherstocking).

The Commission voted 3-0 to investigate Leatherstocking’s rate increase request – which was filed with the Commission on July 1, 2022, and proposes an annual increase in total gas revenues of $701,200 (32.35%).  The total bill for a typical residential customer using 79 Ccf would increase from $169.82 to $226.19 per month (approximately 33.2%).

The request is suspended for up to seven months and will be assigned to the Office of Administrative Law Judge for a recommended decision.  A final decision by the Commission is due by April 1, 2023.  More information on the ratemaking process is available on the PUC’s website.
