(AP) β€” Delaware residents will get the chance to weigh in on proposed rate hikes sought by Delmarva Power.

The News Journal in Wilmington reports (http://delonline.us/2gA1lfT ) that Newark-based Delmarva is seeking a 6 percent jump in electricity rates and a 9 percent hike in natural gas rates.

Power company officials say the money would be used to pay for infrastructure upgrades.

The proposed increases would raise the average monthly bill for a Delaware home by about $5.50 for electricity and $4 for natural gas.

Public meetings on the proposal are scheduled for Tuesday evening in Dover and Wednesday evening in Millsboro.
