Consumer session is set on NV Energy utility rate case
August 28, 2013
State regulators will hold a consumer session early next month in Carson City on NV Energy's application to raise electricity and gas rates for Northern Nevada customers.
For electric customers, NV Energy wants to raise the average monthly residential bill by 1.8 percent, or roughly $1.48. It also wants to increase the monthly residential electric service charge to $15 from $9.25.
For gas customers, the utility is asking to raise the average monthly residential bill an estimated $3.95, or about 11 percent.
The monthly service charge would increase by $1.50 to $10.
The hearing to take public comment is set for 6 p.m. on Sept. 4 at the Nevada Public Utilities Commission office on East William Street.
