A public hearing on the most recent electricity rate hike request from Rocky Mountain Power takes place Thursday, June 2nd, in Casper.
The Public Service Commission hosts this opportunity to ask questions and make comments.
Rocky Mountain Power's original request was for 98 million. That's been scaled back to about 80-million dollars. The hike could boost residential customer bills by 12 dollars a month. Despite the scale back, Tim Summers, with A-A-R-P Wyoming, says it’s still potentially the largest utility rate hike in state history and comes less than a year after the utility company filed a 71-million dollar rate hike request.
