The request represents a 9.25 percent overall increase in customer rates. The company is also seeking implementation of interim rates effective February 16. Xcel says that under the interim rates, an average monthly bill would increase by about 8.6 percent, roughly seven dollars.
The Public Service Commission is expected to hold public hearings in the spring. Following commission review, the final rates could take effect next fall.
