Clay Electric customers' rates are going to rise
News

KEYSTONE HEIGHTS, Fla. -- We are hearing from upset Clay Electric customers who's rates are set to rise.

Clay Electric's website says starting October 4 bills will go up 3.5 percent. This is in addition to an extra $3 in their 'customer charge.'

According to company spokesperson, Wayne Mattox, if customers use 850 kilowat hours a month they currently pay $94.75.

On October 4 the same amount of usage will be $99.03 a month.

Why the rate hike? 

Mattox points to the economy with declining sales and money in the last few years. Mattox said the rates are rising because more people are not moving to the area or starting businesses there.
