Last winter was tough for many in the northeast with the polar vortex. Unfortunately, just because the winter of 2013-14 is over and 2014-2015 is starting, many are still paying for the cold weather last year.
Utility rates in the northeast have skyrocketed in some cases, but it seems that those in Massachusetts are among the hardest hit. National Grid was approved as of November 1 to an increased rate to 16.18 cents per kwh-nearly double the previous rate.
The Boston Globe reports an expected 29% increase in the Nstar rates-from 8.379 to 14.972 cents per kwh.
These two are among the highest increases out there and it seems, at least NatGrid, is expecting this trend to continue!
Fortunately, there is an answer, you don’t have to accept these utility rates! You can lock in a great savings rate of 11.99 for the NEXT THREE YEARS if you act before November 30, 2014.
