Earlier this week, the City of Alameda’s Public Utilities Board unanimously approved the fourth year of Alameda Municipal Power’s five-year rate hike plan. The overall average rate increase is 3.25 percent, and will go into effect July 1st.

The utility wrote in a prepared statement that a typical residential customer with a monthly bill of $53.04 will see another $2.64 tacked on to that after the increase. Increases for commercial users will vary depending on electricity use.

The city-owned power company says that the increases are needed due to higher power transmission costs outside of its control, increased operating expenses, and the replacement of a long-term power contract in 2014 with a new, more expensive, contract.
