Albany electric bills to climb

Posted: Updated:

If you are an Albany Water, Gas & Light customer, you might see an increase on you light bill next year. 

Back in July WG&L passed a 5% increase on to customers, because of a10% increase from MEAG; The Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia, which sells power to cities.

According to the director of fiscal affairs, the full amount of the increase wasn't passed on to customers. However the preliminary budget starting in July 2012 from MEAG, is estimating a $7 million increase.

"These preliminary budgets with increases most of the time they can get them to decrease. But we got another increase coming so be on the look out,"  said AG&L's Director of Fiscal Affairs John Vansant.

The amount of the increase has not yet been decided. And this won't affect your bills until next year starting in July.
