Your Gas & Electric Bill May Be Going Up
The power company that serves most of Upstate New York is asking for higher prices for their gas and electricity service. National Grid wants an increase of $326 million a year for electricity and $81 million for natural gas. If approved, the rates would take effect next April.
For the average customer, that means about $11 a month for electricity and about $10.50 a month for gas. According to an article at times.union.com, that's just over a 10 percent increase from what we are now paying.
National grid serves over one-and-half million customers here in Upstate New York.
