Electric Rates in Roseville Could Change Next Year

What do you think of your electric costs? Roseville Electric and the city could make changes to electricity costs early next year.

How's your electric bill?

The city of Roseville will soon examine the rates Roseville residents pay for electricity, and will be asking residents for their opinions.

Roseville Electric adjusted rates in 2009, and will soon re-examine prices. The Roseville City Council will hear an overview of the upcoming process, but will not take action, at its meeting Wednesday.

In 2010, a consultant said the utility's rates were proportional and match industry standards, and now another outside consultant is preparing to look at rate structures and Roseville Electric's revenues.

According to a city staff report, the next steps in the process are:

  • Finalize the utility's 2014-16 "financial plan and rate case recommendations. ... At this time, it is expected that rate changes will be recommended based upon the results of the financial plan."
  • Hold public outreach meetings in January and February.
  • Recommend the rate changes to the Public Utilities Commission and City Council in February and March.
  • Any rate changes will take effect July 2013.

I think the electric rates are sky high and the $10 late charge each month makes it even harder to catch up!

I am very frustrated with this service provider. My bill for February 2013 was the same as it was during the hot summer months. I can not afford to live in Roseville. I think I will have to move back to Citrus Heights and get back to SMUD and PG&E. Very sad, that I can't afford to live in my hometown. P.S. I would never have a late charge if they would change my due date, because of my pay cycle, but "we can't do that is the response I get." :(
