Duke Anderson Meeting on Rate Hike Set for Tomorrow

A meeting to review Duke Energy's request for a 12.1 percent residential rate hike - which would cost an average residential customer $15 monthly - is scheduled tomorrow in Anderson at 6 p.m. in the county council chambers of the historic courthouse downtown. State officials will be on hand to field questions about the proposed increase.

The average customer, who Duke says pays $117 per month, would see an increase to $132 per month

Duke is also seeking a 238 percent increase in the base rate for residential customers, raising the monthly cost from $8.29 to a minimum of $28 per month.

If approved, thrate hikes would go into effect later this year.

Meetings are also scheduled in March in Greenville and Spartanburg to get customer feedback.
