Another Energy Rate Hike Is Coming Your Way.
In case you missed it, you’re about to pay a whole lot more for your electricity.
Effective November 1st thru May 1st, and in keeping with providers in states across the US, National Grid is planning to hike its electricity supply rates from 9.7 cents/ Kwh to 12.6 cents. For the average household, that’s comes in at somewhere around 27 bucks a month more than you paid last winter.
You have a choice in electricity suppliers, so if you want to do a little leg work you might be able to shave a few cents off that rate. But don’t get too excited, the competition is slim at just under 11 cents, with some pretty slippery small print in the rate agreements.
