OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — If you use power in Omaha, get ready to dig a little deeper into your checking account.

Omaha Public Power District (OPPD) is asking its board of directors to approve a 2.5% rate increase for most users.

OPPD's board of directors will vote on the hike at their December 16 meeting.
