Dougherty County -- Those of you who receive your utilities from Georgia Power may see a higher bill next year.

Georgia Power wants to raise its rates by 406-million dollars next year. This will be the first of a three-year program of rate hikes.

They will begin their pitch Monday at the state Public Service Commission.

The one year hike would add about seven dollars to the typical household average monthly bill. By 2010 that same bill would be a little more than ten dollars higher.

Georgia Power says they need the additional money to pay for a capitol improvement program. Half of it will be used for environmental improvements for its coal-fired plants.
