A public hearing on a potential rate increase for CenterPoint Energy customers will soon be held in Evansville, Indiana, and one group is looking to make their voices heard.
Evansville-based group "Direct Action Against CenterPoint Energy" is planning the rally, which will be held during Wednesday's public hearing at the Old National Events Plaza.
The group says that through the rally Wednesday, it hopes to address some concerns over the potential price hike. "Let's show up with our concerns of increasing utility rates that threaten our ability to make ends meet. Bring signs and banners! Line the sidewalks."
Wednesday's public hearing will be held at 6:00 p.m. in the Locust Room at the Old National Events Plaza. The public is invited to share their thoughts on the potential rate increase, which could add about $23 to a typical CenterPoint Energy customer's monthly bill.
A Facebook event page for the rally says that about 30 people plan to attend the rally and that around 130 others are "interested."
