Rate Increase Sought

Eversource is asking the state of  Massachusetts for a rate increase.  

The average Western Massachusetts  residential customer, which is defined as one that uses 550  kilowatt-hours of electricity monthly, would get a bill that's six  dollars more expensive this winter from last winter. 

 If the Department  of Public Utilities approves the rate increase, it will take effect on  January 1st and stay in place for six months.  

Eversource says higher  prices for natural gas for electric generators is what's driving the  greater cost of electricity.
