All Board of Water and Light customers, expect your bill to be a little higher next month.

Electric rates will increase 1.5 percent for all customers.

BWL Commissioners approved the hike during a meeting last night.

Steam rates will be raised by 35 percent. This only affects about 160 commercial and industrial customers.

The BWL says the increase is necessary after losing sales when several general motors plants closed.

The new rates go into effect September 1.
