Itasca-Mantrap customers will see an increase in their electricity rates in April brought on by rising wholesale costs.

"The 2010 and 2011 wholesale cost of power increase will add $790,973 to our operating costs," wrote CEO Michael Monsrud in the February Member newsletter.


"The board just confirmed the rate increase at last month's board meeting," said Member Services Manager Jared Echternach.
