Looks like your electric bill is going up. El Paso City Council approved the rate hike after a long discussion with El Paso Electric. The average resident will see an increase of $1.88 per month.
El Paso Electric was asking for a $50 million base rate increase but made a compromise with the city for just a little more than $17 million.
If approved by the state, the increase will take effect in July.
