The Commission has scheduled public hearings on these four price change requests, which will begin at 2:00 p.m. on September 9, 2019, and proceed one after the other until concluded. Public witness testimony will be heard near the beginning of each proceeding. (For information on providing such testimony, click here.) After public witnesses are heard, the Commission will hear testimony from expert witnesses for the parties, including testimony from Progress’s expert witnesses.

If there is no opposition to a price change, it is possible that one or more of these hearings will be canceled.
