DULUTH, MN -- After a vote from the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission, bills for Minnesota Power customers won't be increasing as much as originally thought.
In November, Minnesota Power was planning a 10% overall rate increase.
Now, due to COVID-19, the company has sliced that increase by about 6%.
Customers will see changes on their bills starting May 1.
Company leaders said they hope this will help customers out finacially during these tough times.
The MPUC is expected to decide in early June on Minnesota Power’s other proposals including a refund of interim rates for all customers of about $12 million and delaying any future rate proposal until at least March 1, 2021.
