TULSA, Okla. – Oklahoma’s second largest electricity provider said it’s seeking an $88 million rate increase to upgrade aging infrastructure and become more efficient.

Public Service Company of Oklahoma asked the Oklahoma Corporation Commission on Wednesday to authorize a rate increase to replace and upgrade infrastructure and invest in new technology to improve reliability and efficiency. PSO said the rate increase would amount to about $7 per month for a typical residential customer.

PSO also said it’s adopting a performance-based rate plan to lower electricity costs for most of the utility’s 550,000 customers in Oklahoma.

Beginning next month, PSO said residential customers will see lower fuel charges and a decrease in their bill of about $5 per month.
