Alabama Power Rate Hike

Alabama Power Company plans to increase rates on January first.

Rates are going up 5.29 percent.

It’s expected to cost an extra $5.19 monthly for the average residential customer using about 1,000 Kilowatt Hours.

A power company spokesman says the proposed increases will be considered at a public service commission meeting December 12th.

Last year, the PSC approved 3-rate increases for the utility, including an environmental surcharge.
