Electricity Rates on Trial
The lawyer for Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley will be in court this morning to try to block the plan utility regulators approved last month that gives electricity customers the option to delay higher rates.
City Solicitor Ralph Tyler argues in a Baltimore City Circuit Court filing that the plan "blesses and offers no solution to BGE customers who are facing a 72 percent rate increase."
O'Malley, a Democratic candidate for governor, wants the court to temporarily block the plan that was negotiated by Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr. (R) and has angered and confused customers.
The Public Service Commission and BGE oppose the city's effort because they say time is running out to let customers know about their options. The PSC order lets customers sign up for the phase-in plan starting Monday, May 15.
