North Carolina utilities regulators are hearing from the public as they consider Duke Energy’s request for what would be its largest rate increase for residential customers in at least 20 years.

The latest public hearing on Duke’s request to raise rates by 18 percent will be held at Durham City Hall, 101 City Hall Plaza, at 7 p.m. Wednesday.

If the North Carolina Utilities Commission allows the increase, monthly bills for typical residential customers would rise from $95 to about $113, starting in February.
