Speak Out on Eversource Rate Hikes & Storm Response

August 17, 2020

After spiking its electricity rates last month, Eversource failed to adequately prepare and execute recovery operations for Tropical Storm Isaias.

Now, the company has indicated to investors that it expects to recover the bulk of storm-related expenses without cutting into profits in any significant amount–it is unclear how much these costs could fall on ratepayers. Eversource also says it won’t reimburse Connecticut ratepayers for the spoiled food and prescriptions that they had to throw out.

You can speak out about both Eversource’s recent rate increases AND Eversource and UI’s storm response by emailing comments to:
