As the summer approaches, thousands of Roseville Electric Utility customers are preparing to see an 18% increase in their energy bill. David Bradford with Roseville Electric said the rate hike is necessary for them to continue to operate. “The last few years we’ve seen an increase in fuel costs which drove us to reevaluate our rates for our customers,” said Bradford. To reduce the impact for customers the increase will be applied in two phases. “It’s a 9% increase on June 1st and another 9% increase occurring January 1st of 2025,” said Bradford. The current average monthly bill for a customer is $130. Starting in June that will go up to $142 and then to $154 in 2025. Bradford said even with these increases Roseville will still be roughly 45-55% lower than PG&E and matching SMUD rates. “These two rate increases will get us stable over the next several years,” said Bradford. However, customers like Dylan are taking steps to reduce their energy use. “I put a radiant barrier in my attic and just put shade around the property,” said Dylan. Roseville Electric is offering 20% on monthly energy bills to low-income customers who qualify for their Rate Assistance program.
