People living in Santa Fe could soon be paying more for electricity.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, The City Council’s Public Works Committee approved an ordinance granting PNM a franchise fee increase. The rate is 3% of the gross receipts which PNM receives from a sale of electricity in the city.

If approved, bills could increase by three cents more for every dollar charged. A possible final decision could happen by June 26.
