PUB to Consider Rate Hike

At its regular meeting, Monday, April 15, the Public Utilities Board (PUB) will consider a proposal to increase electric rates for commercial and residential customers. If approved by the board, the average increase of 1.8 to 2.5 percent for commercial customers would go into effect on July 1, 2019.

Alameda Municipal Power’s (AMP) commercial rates would still average between 11 and 19 percent below Pacific Gas & Electric Co. commercial energy rates in neighboring communities. 
Before the April 15 meeting, the public is invited to an AMP budget workshop at 4 p.m. at the AMP Service Center, 2000 Grand St.
