Stressed about high power bills? You’re far from alone, but a recent decision by the Alabama Public Service Commission means if you use Alabama Power you’ll be getting a portion of a customer-wide $62 million refund in August.

Exact amounts of the refunds aren’t yet known.

The refund comes after a trio of power rate increases since August 2022. For an average customer, you’re paying about $22 more a month since then, or about $237 more per year.

The APSC voted Tuesday to approve the refunds, and they’ll go to anyone who paid an Alabama Power bill in July, August or September in 2022.
