Utility Company To Raise Rates

If repairs from September's wind storm cost you money, it's not over yet.

The Courier-Journal reports that the cost of restoring power during the windstorm exceeded 35 million dollars, that's according to a post-storm report by Louisville Gas & Electric.

LG&E plans to ask customers to cover the bill in an upcoming rate increase.

If the utility's request is approved, residential customers would see about 75 cents added to their monthly bills over a five-year period starting in January.
