LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky utility regulators have approved
rate increases for customers of Kentucky Utilities Co. and
Louisville Gas & Electric Co.
With the new rates approved Friday, residential electric
customers of the two utilities will see their monthly bills
increase by about $7. LG&E residential natural gas customers will
have their monthly bills go up by about $4.
The two utilities filed for rate increases in January. The rate
hikes agreed to by the Kentucky Public Service Commission are lower
than the amounts requested by the utilities.
In another decision, the PSC said it has started an audit that
will review customer service functions at both utilities. The PSC
says it has received numerous complaints related to billing changes
by both utilities.
