AMP Increased Rates Monday

Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) enacted a rate increase beginning July 1. The energy charge will increase slightly for all commercial customers — the average increase is approximately 1.8 to 2.5 percent.

Alameda’s small businesses, such as law offices and accountants’ offices, will see a $1 “customer charge” increase from $28 to $29.

AMP’s commercial rates will still average approximately 11 to 19 percent below PG&E’s commercial energy rates in neighboring communities. Rate prices are set by the City Council-appointed Public Utilities Board. The board reviews rates annually.
