Eversource customers to see rate increase

Eversource customers will see a 19 percent increase in the energy charge, which makes up roughly half of most residential bills.

The Public Utilities Commission on Friday approved the supply charge to go up from the current 7.903 cents per kilowatt hour to 9.412 cents.

Eversource officials said the increase comes because the price of power that they buy has gone up, and said it provides no profit to the utility.

The default energy service charge will be adjusted on Aug. 1 and Feb. 1.

Eversource is by far the largest electricity provider in New Hampshire. It serves parts of Great Concord, along with Unitil and New Hampshire Electric Cooperative.
