Electric Bill Changes Coming
The not so good news – ABC's Channel 10 News reports that Roseville Electric Utility customers could see an extra charge on their bill next year. “Roseville Electric Utility is proposing an 8% energy surcharge in addition to an already-approved 3% increase starting in January. Roseville City Council is set to vote on the proposal Wednesday. The 8% charge would be in effect from Feb. 1, 2023, through Dec. 31, 2024. If approved, customers could see an 11% increase in 2023.”
The good news is that we had no increase between 2015-2021. They are also hoping that those on their Electric Rate Assistance program won't have their rates raised.
Per the City – “The need for this proposed surcharge is a direct result of significant and rapid increases in energy market prices. Our projected power supply costs for FY23 and FY24 have increased nearly 35 percent compared to what we expected for our rate proposal last summer/fall (approximately $20 million annually).”
More good news – we are still one of or THE lowest in our area.
Definitely NOT fun, but not surprising the way things have been going?

I was happy to see Daffodils and Hyacinths on their list for December (among other months) as they are two of my favorite flowers. I won't be planting any this month but maybe next year… 😀 One caveat to planting in December, though. You do have to beware of a frost. I bet Green Acres can give you good advice on that.
