Electric Rate Case Hearing

Update 4/15/15: Two more notices

Muscoda Light & Water Utility has filed an application with the Public Service
Commission of Wisconsin (PSC) to increase electric rates. The adjustment has been requested in
order to cover inflationary increases in operational and maintenance expenses and costs
associated with maintaining the reliability of the electric distribution system. Additionally, the
utility has asked the Commission to set appropriate rate levels which may include raising fixed
customer charges. The last electric rate decrease was approved in 2010.

The requested increase in revenues is an overall increase above the electric utility’s
present revenues of 9.09%, or $431,325. This request is detailed in the Muscoda Light & Water
Utility electric rate application submitted to the PSCW on June 13, 2014. After review,
Commission staff proposed an increase in rates of $389,737, or 8.22%. The actual change to
individual customers will vary with electricity usage, class of service and ultimate rates
authorized by the Commission. All information regarding this application is available
electronically at the PSCW’s website:

A telephonic hearing on the application has been scheduled for April 29, 2015, at 2:30
p.m. at the following locations:

Village of Muscoda
206 N Wisconsin Ave. P.O. Box 230
