RG&E, NYSEG Submit Rate Hike Proposal

Rochester Gas and Electric and New York State Electric & Gas are paring back their proposed rate hikes, but only slightly.

Parent company Avangrid submitted a proposed rate settlement case.

It's expected the average customer would see a $10 per month increase in their bills.

CEO Trish Nilson says the original proposal called for a 22% hike.

The utility companies say the money would pay for aging infrastructure repairs and better customer service.

The state Public Service Commission still needs to sign off on the increases.
