By  | 

The Public Utilities Commission of Nevada approved an overall 3.5 percent increase in electric rates for Sierra Pacific Power Company's northern Nevada customers to reflect the continuing rise in fuel and energy costs.

For the typical residential customer using 740 kilowatt hours of electricity, monthly bills will increase by $2.96, from $95.07 to $98.03. The increase will become effective May 1, 2006.
