Residential customers in some eastern Nebraska counties will be paying more for electricity soon.

The Cornhusker Public Power rates are expected to go up an average of $6 a month effective Sunday.

Loup River Public Power District customers can expect an average increase of about $10.35 a month for billings after Jan. 15.

The Loup River district serves a four-county area with its headquarters in Columbus. Cornhusker Public Power also is based in Columbus and serves portions of Platte, Colfax, Boone, Nance, Greeley and Wheeler counties.

Loup River and Cornhusker officials cited higher wholesale prices from Nebraska Public Power District among reasons for the retail rate increases.
