Rate Increase to Appear on July Bills

Roseville Electric customers will see a 6.2 percent rate increase starting with their July 2010 electric bills.  The increase was approved by City Council in late 2009 to bridge a deficit caused by the sudden and abnormal downturn in the economy.

A typical electric customer (800 kWh p/month) will see a $6.23 increase in monthly electric charges on bills issued after June 30. 

The rate increase, along with reduced employee compensation and cuts to travel, training and capital improvement projects will help the publicly owned utility bridge a projected $98 million budget gap over the next five years.
