Your electric bill this month could be noticeably higher; Why AES customers pay more than others

MIAMI VALLEY — AES Ohio customers will soon be getting a bill with noticeably higher rates.

According to AES, there are multiple reasons for this price hike including the War in Ukraine, inflation and an increase in gas prices.

Prices are up 6 cents per kWh from 4.8 cents to 10.9 cents per kWh., this may seem small but it can add up.

A customer who uses 1,000 kWh per month, will see a $60 increase on their bill.
