The New York State Public Service Commission (Commission) seeks public comment on a Joint Proposal to set electric and natural gas delivery rates for New York State Electric & Gas Corporation (NYSEG) and Rochester Gas and Electric Corporation (NYSEG) for the period September 26, 2010, through December 31, 2013.

The Joint Proposal is the result of negotiations in which all parties to the NYSEG and RG&E rate cases were free to participate. The Joint Proposal is intended to resolve all outstanding issues in these cases. The Joint Proposal may be adopted, modified or rejected by the Commission.

Under the Joint Proposal, a typical NYSEG residential electric customer would see an average monthly bill increase in the first year of the rate plan of approximately $1.45 or 2.2 percent. For RG&E electric customers, it would be $3.70, or 5.0 percent. Residential gas heating customers would see monthly bills increase by an average of $6.53, or 6.2 percent in NYSEG's service territory and $3.51, or 3.8 percent in RG&E's service territory. For the first three years of the rate plan, the proposed increases for typical residential customers are shown in the following table:
