Residents of Clallam and south Jefferson counties already upset over higher electricity rates imposed last fall could get more bad news next month.
The Bonneville Power Administration could impose three separate wholesale electricity rate increases next month, Clallam County Public Utility District General Manager Dennis Bickford said Monday.
The agency isn’t saying how much each of those rate increases would be, Bickford said.
Any rate increase passed on to consumers will be based on Bonneville’s wholesale increase.
Bonneville supplies about 99 percent of Clallam County Public Utility District’s electricity, as well as supplying Mason County Public Utility District No. 1, which serves south Jefferson County.
