Hearings Set for Utility Rate Raise

Formal public hearings concerning proposed power rate increases sought by Big Rivers Electric Corp. and Kenergy Corp. are scheduled to take place in Frankfort next month. If the full rate increases are granted to both companies, residential rates for Kenergy customers would increase 9.97 percent. Commercial and industrial rates would increase by lesser amounts.
