Iowa Electric Announces A Drop In Rates The Iowa Electric Light and Power Company has filed with the Iowa Commerce Commission a proposed rate reduction affecting certain commercial and power customers now being billed on the basis of two meters. According to President Duane Arnold, the reduction amounts to approximately $600,000 and is a part of planned rate adjustments which have been carried out since 1960. These adjustments have resulted in rate reductions to residential, rural and commercial customers since 1960 totaling $1,700,000. It is the policy of the company to make electric rate reductions as rapidly as the rate of growth and operating efficiencies permit. These savings have been distributed equitably to customers, employees and investors, Arnold said. In making the present adjustment to commercial and power customers, the company seeks to simplify its rate structure as it applies to the various classes of service. The present reduction affects commercial customers who have been billed separately through two meters for commercial and power usage. Service will now be combined through one meter and the rate reduction applies to these customers. The Iowa Commerce Commission has 30 days to consider the rate reduction as requested and, unless the rate Is suspended by the Commission, it will become effective November 6.
