UES Files Request to Increase Natural Gas Service Rates
UniSource Energy Services has filed a request for new natural gas service rates that would increase average residential bills by an estimated 6% beginning in late 2009 or early 2010.
UniSource Energy Services' (UES) current rates are based on costs the company incurred during 2005, and expenses have increased steadily since then. The company has spent more than $54 million since 2005 to strengthen and expand its distribution system while adding more than 5,000 new customers.
