National Grid Bill Too High? Relief May Be In Sight
If you're struggling to pay your utility bill, there may be some relief in sight.
"I'm pleased to learn that National Grid is helping its customers avoid an estimated 27 percent increase in price by freezing its electric rates at January levels. Ratepayers, including small businesses, won't be forced to choose between being able to keep warm or pay their bill," said Senator Joseph Griffo (R. - 47th District).
"What we're not going to collect is what we expect will be the spike in cost of the actual electricity itself, the actual commodity," said National Grid spokeman Steve Brady.
"Presumably, we will wait until the weather is a little bit better and things have started to normalize for customers," Brady said.
