RENO (AP) — Nevada's largest utility has filed a request for more than $30 million in rate reductions for ratepayers beginning in October.

Under the request filed with the state Public Utilities Commission, residential ratepayers in northern Nevada would enjoy about a $24.1 million savings and those in southern Nevada about $6.7 million effective Oct. 1.

The proposed rate cuts are in addition to rate reductions effective April 1 that will reduce the cost of monthly electric bills about $2.10 for northern Nevada customers.

Southern Nevada residential electric customers will see an average decrease of $3.88 on their monthly bills.
