Your Electric Bill In New Hampshire Is About To Increase
New England's largest energy delivery company is about to raise their prices. According to a report by WMUR-TV, state regulators have approved a 19.1 percent increase in energy supply charges. That means if you're an Eversource customer your bill is about to go up.
The price increase will start on February 1, 2019. WMUR-TV says New Hampshire's Public Utilities Commission approved the supply charge increase from 7.903 cents per kilowatt-hour to 9.412 cents per kilowatt-hour. And that Eversource won't see a profit from the price hike because it deals with the supply aspect and not delivery.
Expect another price increase next August. WMUR-TV says that Eversource is planning on purchasing power for six-month periods, so it will have two rate adjustments each year.
