Power company gets rate hike

Some Kentuckians will soon have to pay a higher electric bill. The Public Service Commission gave Kentucky Power permission to raise rates 12.5%. The state says that's half the hike the power company wanted

The PSC says the rate increase will mean an average customer using 1,430 kilowatt-hours per month would see an increase of about $20 a month.

The new rates go into effect Tuesday, June 29. Kentucky Power serves 176,000 customers in 20 eastern Kentucky counties.
