State settlement caps Atmos rate increase

Atmos Energy will lift its natural gas prices by only 0.5 percent June 1 after agreeing to a settlement with state officials. Dallas-based Atmos services about 132,000 customers in 11 Tennessee counties, including Williamson, Rutherford and Maury. The company had asked the Tennessee Regulatory Authority to raise its rates by 3.9 percent, which would have generated an extra $5.9 million over the next nearly two years. But the Consumer Advocate and Protection Division of the Tennessee Attorney General’s Office intervened and also negotiated a 9.8 percent cap on the utility's return on equity.
