Commission approves rate increase for Juneau

Posted: September 6, 2011 - 10:08am

JUNEAU — Alaska regulators have approved a Juneau utility’s request to raise consumer bills by 22 percent.

The Regulatory Commission of Alaska last year granted Alaska Electric Light and Power Compnay an interim increase of 18.5 percent while it considered whether to grant the utility’s request for the permanent increase of 22 percent. It granted the request after several delays late Friday.

AEL&P’s Scott Willis says residential consumers can expect to pay an additional $2-3 on their next bill. In all, he said, since the interim increase was approved, residential bills will have risen an average of about $16 a month.

The utility, which has about 16,000 customers in Juneau, has said the increase is needed cover inflation and added costs, including those associated with completing a hydro project.

The last rate increase came in 2005.
