We Energies request 4.9 percent increase on electric rates
Wisconsinites are cutting back on electricity and the state's largest utility says it needs more money to cover the lost revenue.

Now, the utility wants to make it a 7 percent hike which would bring in $50 million plus the $76 million it sought earlier.
