(KSL News) -- Utah Power wants to raise its rates, but a watchdog group says the utility should cut rates instead.
The power company is asking for an increase of $4.75 a month, per household. The utility says the increase is needed to beef up the state's power system and to cover employee benefits.
But The Committee of Consumer Services accuses Utah Power of highballing and says it should cut rates by 3.4 percent.
