In the Northern Marianas, a new power rate for the next six months is expected to take effect on October the 1st.

The move comes after the Commonwealth Utilities Corporation and the regulatory consultant of the Commonwealth Public Utilities Commission agreed to endorse a higher rate.

It was recommended that the cost of power be increased by one percent to just over 25 cents a kilowatt-hour.
