Eversource Price Update

For Jan.1-July. 2022

Price of electricity rising this winter

The cost of electricity changes twice a year in Massachusetts for Eversource customers; Jan. 1.2022 and July 1.2022. This January, your electric bill will be higher because of the increased demand for natural gas and electricity.

What to EXPECT

  •    Eversource is required to file proposed rates with state regulators. If approved, the average residential customer that uses Eversource as their energy supplier using 500 kilowatt hours per month could see a 25%, or about $30, increase to their total bill compared with December.
  • Your total bill will depend on how much energy is used, the rate you are on, and weather conditions.
  • As a regulated energy distribution company, Eversource purchases electricity from wholesale suppliers on behalf of customers and passes the cost on with no profit to the company.
