Your Eversource Rate is Scheduled to Rise on January 1, 2021

Eversource to Raise Utility Rate Again

HARTFORD – Connecticut’s utility regulators said recently that Eversource Energy, which drew protests during the summer for a rate increase, will raise prices January 1, reports The Hartford Guardian. It would apply to customers in Connecticut who are signed up for the company’s standard service generation rate, or those not using an alternative energy company.

The proposed winter electricity prices are about 8.4 cents a kilowatt-hour, up from about 7.4 cents, a 13 percent increase. The average residential customer using 700 kilowatt-hours of electricity a month would pay about $7.11 more on the supply portion of their bill, Eversource said.


Choosing solar protects you from skyrocketing electric bills. By installing photovoltaic (PV) solar panels on your roof, your house can become energy independent. Meaning, you can be free from high electric costs, by generating your own energy from the sun. In Connecticut, there are local incentives in place that help pay for your solar system.

Residential Solar Investment Program

Financial incentive provided by Connecticut Green Bank to lower the cost of leasing or purchasing a solar system.

Property Tax Exemption

The State of Connecticut offers homeowners a property tax exemption for solar systems.

Net Metering

Net metering allows you to store energy your panels produce in the electric grid for use at a later date (for example, excess energy produced in July can be used in December), decreasing your electricity bill and putting money back in your pocket.
