Eversource Rate Review Public Hearings

August 2nd hearing at Cape Cod Community College

From Eversource:

On January 17, 2017, Eversource Energy submitted a proposal to the Department of Public Utilities (DPU) to update the company's electric rates. The proposal requests a net increase in annual delivery revenue of $60.2 million, representing a 7 percent increase in those revenues to support our electric distribution operations.

On June 1, 2017, Eversource filed a revised rate design proposal with the DPU that shifts revenues between Eastern and Western Massachusetts as compared to the original proposal. This has the potential to change customer bill impacts.

Eversource's request addresses increases in operating and maintenance costs and capital costs associated with investments in the electric network since the last decision by the DPU approving a general distribution rate increase in 2006. 

The DPU will review our request, conduct public hearings in Eversource's service area, and then make a decision by December 29, 2017 for new rates to become effective January 1, 2018.
