Con Ed wants to raise rates

Consumers may need to dig a little deeper into their pockets if they are Con Ed customers in Westchester.



Officials are proposing an average rate hike of just over 3 percent, which will result in an increase of about $5 a month.



Con Ed says this is the company's first rate increase since April 2012.



They say the hike is needed for repair work and technical upgrades.
