Slight changes to Puget Sound Energy electricity and natural gas rates took effect Nov. 1. State regulators announced the rate changes Oct. 28.

The state Utilities and Transportation Commission approved PSE’s request to pass natural gas costs to customers. The increase of about 2 percent translates to about $1.50 for residential customers using 68 therms per month.

In separate actions, regulators took steps to decrease electricity rates for PSE customers. The average residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity per month should see his or her bill decrease by 2.63 percent from November through March — or $1.65, down from $99.68 to $98.03 per month.

Bellevue-based PSE serves more than 1 million electric customers and almost 750,000 natural gas customers in Western Washington, including Issaquah.
