Bills might be going up for Peoples Natural Gas customers.
Peoples Gas says they have filed a request with the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission for a base rate increase to support its Long Term Infrastructure Improvement Plan.
If the request is approved, the company says a typical Peoples division residential customer would see a bill increase of approximately $10 per month. The earliest possible date for the rate change would be the end of March, but the company says the new rates aren’t expected to go into effect until fall 2019.
Peoples’ goal is to remove and replace aging pipelines to improve infrastructure and decrease greenhouse gas emissions.
