10:20AM Tuesday July 29, 2008

Meridian Energy is hiking residential electricity prices by an average of six per cent from September.

The rise will hit 200,000 customers. It means the average bill of $175 per month will go up by around $13.

The increase follows rises by most other companies. Meridian says customers will be advised of the increase by mail this week.
