PUC approves HECO rate increase

Posted: Updated:

The Hawaii Public Utilities Commission on Monday approved Hawaiian Electric's first rate hike in six years.

HECO says the average Oahu household will see a $2.82 increase on their monthly bill.

The 2.5% increase will help pay for initiatives that increase reliability and resilience, renewable energy, and improve customer service.

The PUC must set a date when that rate will take effect.
