“PSE electric, natural gas customers to pay more for service”

From today’s Pierce County Business Examiner:

“Electricity bills for Puget Sound Energy residential customers will increase by 3.2 percent while natural gas bills will rise by 1.3 percent as a result of action taken by state regulators today. New rates go into effect May 14.

The Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission is allowing PSE to raise electric rates by $63.3 million a year and $13.4 million for natural gas rates, substantially less than the $161 million and $32 million, respectively, the utility originally requested last June. The last PSE rate increase approved by the commission was two years ago.

The average PSE residential electric customer using 1,000 kilowatt hours-per-month will see their electric bill increase by $3.30, for a bill total of $102.56. The typical natural gas customer using 68 therms a month would pay $1.08 more, for a revised bill of $86.09.”
