EuGENE, Ore. - The typical power bill would go up $50 per year under a proposal before the Eugene Water & Electric Board commissioners.

The board will hold the first of two public hearings on Tuesday, Sept. 6, to gather public comments about a proposed electric rate increase that would take effect in the fall.

Three primary factors are driving the proposed rate increase, according to EWEB:

The effect of the proposed rate action would result in an increase of about $4.24 per month, or 4.7 percent, for the average residential customer. The rate change would be reflected in customers' November bills.

Tuesday's regular Board meeting will start at 7:30 p.m. in the North Building at EWEB headquarters, 500 E. Fourth Ave.

Commissioners are expected to take action on the proposed rate increase following a second public hearing on Oct. 4.
