COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Colorado Springs Utilities customers could see an increase to their energy bills starting in November.

On Wednesday, the Utilities Board discussed a proposed increase to natural gas and electric rates. The rates still need to be approved by the Colorado Springs City Council, but if they are, customers could see about a $28.52 per month increase to their bills starting Nov. 1 based on a sample residential bill.

“We know this is a difficult time for our customers and we have programs to help,” Colorado Springs Utilities wrote on social media. “If you need assistance, please contact us.”
