Pacific Power Electric Rates Going Up

Laramie, Wy – The state Public Service Commission approved a 25 million dollar rate increase for PacifiCorp customers in Wyoming.
Pacificorp supplies electricity to consumers in Wyoming. The increase means the average residential customer can expect to pay an extra four-dollars-and-75-cents per month on their utility bills.
PacifiCorp operates in the state as Pacific Power. It has about 130-thousand electric customers in a service area that includes much of southwest Wyoming, the Casper area and parts of Fremont County and the Big Horn Basin.
PacifiCorp electric customers in Wyoming have not seen a rate increase since September 2004.
