CASTILE ELECTRIC RATES WILL RISE BY 4.3 PERCENT

Retail electricity rates in the Wyoming County Village of Castile will rise 4.3 percent in the next billing period, to $18.04 for 500 kilowatt hours.

State Power Authority trustees raised the rate Tuesday, citing higher delivery charges by private utility companies that deliver authority electricity to municipal companies.

Castile, which has spent $339,000 expanding a substation and acquiring a new meter building, also asked for increases to cover higher operating and maintenance expenses.
