Oncor Energy is trying to raise its rates across the state of Texas, but Lufkin city officials are trying to stop it from happening here.
Tonight, the council approved a resolution to suspend the rate increase for 90 days, and join a coalition with numerous other cities to review the rate structure.
Oncor owns the lines that deliver electricity from TXU or Reliant to their customers. Now, Oncor wants to increase rates $275 million across the state.
Tonight's resolution gives the city 90 days to review its options and prepare for Oncor's eventual appeal to the Public Utilities Commission.
