Rates up for Eolia-Partridge area

The Kentucky Public Service Commission says it has given its approval to a utility company rate increase that will hike the bills of residents of the Cumberland River area of Letcher County by an average of $4.95 per month.

Homeowners in the Eolia Partridge area are served by the Cumberland Valley Electric, one of 16 electric distribution cooperatives that own and purchase power from the East Kentucky Power Cooperative Inc (EKPC).

The PSC last week granted EKPC an annual revenue increase of $43 million.
