Electric bills for Colorado customers of Aquila Incorporated are going up.
The Colorado Public Utilities Commission yesterday approved a request from the Kansas City-based utility to raise rates two-point-two percent, effective next month.
Company officials say residential customers should see an average increase of one-dollar-76-cents per month. Small businesses
will see bills rise about 12-dollars-six-cents.
Aquila serves 90-thousand electric customers and 55-thousand natural gas customers in Colorado.
The estimated eight-point-two (m) million dollars gained from the increase will be used to pay for improvements to infrastructure and operations.
Aquila is still awaiting word on a request to raise electric rates in Kansas by 13 percent.
