Elba Power Bill Raise

Elba residents have received their city utility bills for August and several residents tell News 4 that they can not afford to pay it.

Jackson Street residents discussed their electric bills either doubling, or tripling from the month before.

Elba's main power supplier is Alabama Electric cooperative based in Andalusia.

Elba Major James Grimes says the price of a kilowatt remains the same.

Officials say power usage hit record levels last month with temperatures over 100-degrees for half the month.
