The rate debate between Big Rivers Electric and Century Aluminum has taken a new turn. One that could increase how much customers pay each month.
"Typically, we always make decisions in the best interest of all our consumers. So obviously this rate increase is something no utility wants to do, but it's the only immediate fix in the short term," said Marty Littrel with Big Rivers.
Again, the rate increase still has to go through the PSC review process. If approved, Kenergy expects the higher rates to kick in sometime in August. That's also when Century Aluminum will no longer be a customer.
