Power Rates Headed Up

Laramie, Wy – Wyoming customers of Pacific Power also known as Pacific Power and Light should see an average increase in their bills of one dollar and 30 cents. The state's Public Service Commission approved the rate increase Tuesday. It came after the company and several groups worked on a compromise. Wyoming Consumer Advocate, Bryce Freeman, says they always look for ways to benefit consumers.
Freeman says as part of this deal Pacific Power agreed to freeze rates for 12 to 18 months. The electricity company serves 15 Wyoming counties including the city of Casper.
