2nd ANNUAL OZARK SEED SWAP TO PRESERVE
Does It Do Any Good To Complain?
The answer is Yes! Complaints are an important part of the Arkansas Public Service Commission's (APSC's) regulatory duties. They help us monitor utility compliance with our rules. Over 50,000 questions and complaints are handled each year by our Consumer Services Office.
The APSC has the authority to investigate utility service, safety, billing, and rates. We handle complaints about service outages, connection and suspension of service, billing problems, payment arrangements, and disputed charges.
This is a brief introduction to a new coal burning power plant proposed for eastern Oklahoma. Shady Point II: (It is "Shady" that's the Point). Shady Point and Panama are two small towns in Oklahoma about 20 miles south of I-40 near Arkansas. They are home to a 330 megawatt coal burning power plant owned by AES (Shady Point I). AES is seeking permits to build an additional plant in the same location (Shady Point II). The additional plant would be 630 megawatts.
Electric utilities throughout the Ozarks are presently using a combination of herbicides to kill the native plants, trees, and shrubs that grow beneath the power lines throughout our region. Thousands of miles of Right of Ways (ROW’s) are being sprayed, causing harm to a wide range of species. Chemical residues from herbicides wash into area creeks, ponds, springs, wells, and groundwater.
