A request by Duke Energy Progress to increase rates to recover costs associated with energy efficiency programs has been approved by the Public Service Commission of South Carolina (PSCSC).
The rate increases were made necessary by shortened recovery periods for program costs and costs associated with implementation of the efficiency programs. Charges are re-evaluated each year by PSCSC officials.
Customers will see increases on bills generated after Jan. 1. Residential customers using 1,000 kilowatt hours a month will see a hike of $3.57. Increases for non-residential customers will vary, but those that participate in the energy efficiency programs will see a $3.52 increase on their monthly bills.
