PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Duquesne Light says it wants to raise its rates.
The company made that request to the Public Utility Commission on Friday.
Under its proposed plan, the average home would pay an additional $7.73 per month.
An average commercial customer would pay around $55 more per month.
According to Duquesne Light, the company has not raised its base rate since 2018, and says it needs more money for critical infrastructure adjustments.
If the Public Utility Commission approves the rate increases, they would take effect in January next year.
