Eversource and United Illuminating Rates Increasing in January

Rates will be going up for Eversource and United Illuminating customers in Connecticut.

The Public Utilities Regulatory Authority released information Friday on the new rates after Eversource and UI recently submitted proposed winter cycle rates.

As of Jan. 1, Eversource's residential generation rate will go up from 8.01 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) to 9.08 cents/kWh.

Eversource said the average residential customer using 700 kilowatt hours of electricity each month will see an increase of approximately $7.45 per month on the supply portion of their bill. Each customer’s total bill depends on how much energy they use, their rate category, and weather conditions.

UI's residential generation rate will change from 7.6 cents/kWh to 9.66 cents/kWh.

The Standard Service generation service rates for other residential and business customer classes are also set to change with the new rate effective from Jan. 1 to June 30.
