Recent research has documented that methane gas is too costly for our health, our communities, & our economy. Yet, Southwest Gas is seeking a 11.4% rate hike that includes $664,596 in 2021 membership dues for the American Gas Association & a line-extension allowance, which forces customers to pick up the tab when developers want to extend gas lines to residential & commercial properties. Shareholders, not ratepayers, should pay for such membership dues. And developers should pay their own way. Tell the Arizona Corporation Commission “no” to consumers paying for extending dirty & dangerous gas. No to a double-digit rate hike.
