Rocky Mountain Power Rate Increase Approved

The Wyoming Public Service Commission approved a $44.6 million rate increase for Rocky Mountain Power's customers. 

This will cost the average customer $6.30 more per month beginning September 22nd. 

Reduced power costs and changes to federal tax laws are two reasons the price dropped from the original request of $97.9 million. 

Rocky Mountain Power says even with the increase, the overall average price will remain among the lowest in the nation. 

Rocky Mountain Power services over 130 thousand customers.
