Alabama Power Rate Hike Approved

A vote by the Alabama Public Service Commission on a rate increase means higher bills for Alabama Power customers. 

Alabama Power will raise rates by 5.6%.

This means the average residential customer will pay about $67 more per year.

Company officials are blaming below level rainfall for reduced power production at its dams.
