ANCHORAGE - Enstar says it won't be appealing the Regulatory Commission of Alaska's decision to deny its request to recoup a $5.7 million billing error.
The commission had ruled that the natural gas company's proposal to raise rates to absorb the cost of the error was unreasonable.
Enstar overcharged Fort Richardson for 10 times as much gas as was used at its laundry between 2002 and 2007. Enstar later repaid the Department of Defense.
The company said the higher gas volume resulted in lower prices to consumers and that they should pay because the gas was used in its system and left unpaid.
The commission ordered Enstar to refund the extra charges.
