Duke Energy and Tampa Electric filed to adjust customers bills.   The annual filing is part of the “fuel cost recovery” proceedings that take place this time of year.

If approved, Tampa Electric bills would go up, while Duke Energy bills would go down.

Tampa Electric requested to raise rates for customers by an average $8.14 per month, about an 8 percent increase, bringing the typical household’s bill to $105.83 per 1,000 kilowatt hours.  Ouch.

 

Duke Energy bills, on the other hand, will drop slightly.

The utility filed to decrease bills by $3.63 per 1,000 kilowatt hours, just under 3 percent. If approved by regulators, an average household powered by Duke Energy will pay $126.63 each month.
