Public Citizen Files Emergency Complaint Alleging Possible Market Manipulation by Dynegy, Urges Investigation of Midwest Power Auction

WASHINGTON - Alleging possible illegal market manipulation, Public Citizen has filed an emergency request for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to block a pending utility rate increase that would inflate electricity costs for the average Illinois family by $140 annually. The new rate is scheduled to go into effect on June 2. Public Citizen also is calling for FERC to investigate.
