Residential customers would see average monthly increase of approximately $9.50
We requested permission to increase rates by approximately $19.3 million, or 9.8 percent. If the MPUC approves the overall request as filed, residential customers would see a bill increase of approximately $9.50 a month; general service business customers would see a bill increase of approximately $22 a month. The increase would be more for some customers and less for others, depending on the rates on which they’re served and the amount of electricity they use.
While the MPUC considers this request, we asked to increase rates on an interim basis. If approved, the interim increase would be effective April 16, 2016. It would remain in effect until the MPUC makes a final determination on our overall request, which we expect would be in 2017.
