Industrial and large service electric rates to increase

Posted by wlpo on June 23, 2009

In a move to keep up with the rising cost of buying electricity, the City of Peru is raising the electric rate for industrial and large businesses.
A 5% increase will be showing up on bills starting July 1. The increase is only for nine industrial customers and 30 to 32 large services and non-profit hospitals. It won’t affect your home power bill.
The city council approved the increase last night.
City officials believe the higher rates will help them cover the increasing cost of buying power but also keep them more affordable than other power suppliers.
