LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- Customers who recently expressed displeasure with a proposed 0.9 percent increasing in their NV Energy bill are likely to be less than happy with the latest development.

NV Energy filed paperwork Friday with the Nevada Public Utilities Commission that boosts that rate request to 1.64 percent.

The filing indicated the amended request was based on more recent customer counts, sales information, and plant and labor costs.

NV Energy pointed out that the increased request, if approved, would still result in the lowest rate increase in more than a decade.

The new proposal says the average NV Energy consumer who uses 1,141 kilowatt hours a month would see a bill of just over $152, an increase of just under $4 a month.

The PUC is scheduled to resume hearings on the rate increase request at 10 a.m. Aug. 26.

If approved, the new rates would go into effect Jan. 1, 2015.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
