The article reports that Tucson Electric Power Co.'s (TEP's) plans for rate increase has backfired. TEP asked the Arizona Corporation Commission to choose from one of three plans. The state officials suggested other proposals, which the chief executive officer (CEO) of TEP James S. Pignatelli called reckless. TEP has been under a rate-freeze since 1994, and it expires at the end of 2008. The staff of the corporation commission also questioned some of the statistics in TEP's request.
