Federal ruling to save Tipton utility $60,000 ( TIPTON -- The T i p t o n E l e c t r i c Company will save about $60,000 because the Federal Power Commission has postponed the effective date for higher wholesale electric rates, according to Gene Hitz, city utilities manager. Ritz told the Tipton Utility Service Board Monday that the commission delayed i m p l e m e n t i n g t h e h i g h e r rates to allow municipal electric companies, rural electric cooperatives and Public Service Indiana {PSI) to gather evidence for a hearing on PSI's petition for the increase. Last Jan. 8 PSI filed a petition with the commission seeking to increase electric rates to the municipal utilities and rural cooperatives by $5.4 million per year. Ritz said the petition would amount to an increase of 24 to 25 per cent for the Tipton company. Ritz said PSI had planned to bill its wholesale customers at the increased rate beginning May 15. If PSI's requested increase was later denied or reduced, then PSI would have had to refund the difference, Ritz said. If granted in full, the proposed increase would cost Tipton utilities an extra $12,000 per month, or roughly $150,000 per year, Ritz said. Because of the federal commission's ruling, the higher rate will not become effective until Oct. 15. "I'm real happy to see that," Ritz told the utility board. He reported that the commission has scheduled a hearing on the case for July 29 in Washington, D.C. After the meeting, a hearing examiner will investigate the arguments of b o t h sides and eventually the power commission will issue a ruling, he said. Ritz. praised the work of Washington attorneys hired by the municipal and rural electric companies to represent them in the matter and gave them much of the credit for saving the $60,000. "The money we're paying for attorneys is really paying off," he said Monday. In a previous rate dispute \vliich was settled last October, Ritz said attorneys in Washington were p a i d $15,000 to represent the local electric company and helped to get the company a savings of $100,000 in a reduced rate increase. In other business, Ritz asked the utility board to vote to join the Kentucky-Indiana Municipal Power Assoc i a t i o n K i m p a , which has been formed to buy electric power collectively. Ritz said there are now two possible sources of getting cheap, hydroelec- t r i c power from Tiplon customers from power projects at Falmouth, Ky., and Vanceburg, Ky. However the projects are still in early stages and it would take from three to five years before construction could be completed and the power plants in full operation, he said. Electric companies w h i c h j o i n t KIMPA later on will have to pay some of the earlier costs of getting the collective program started, he said. Membership in KIMPA would cost the utility board about $5,000 per year he said. All of KIMPA's present expenditures are for legal and engineering fees, and not for production and distribution of electric power, he said. "Any gains you would get are 15 years down the road," he said. "I'm thinking in terms of long term savings rather than short term savings." The board took no action on the matter. Indiana cities which are members of KIMPA include Crawfordsville, Huntingburg, Ferdinand, Washington and Jasper. F r a n k f o r t , K y . , a n d Paris, Ky., also belong.
