“Some of it is simple economics that we’re kind of at the end of the so-called pipeline,” said Fazio. “We’re in the northeastern part of the country, but the state government does bear some responsibility for the high costs.”

Fazio says the legislature’s Energy Committee was able to work together and pass some bipartisan measures to strengthen oversight of utilities, and include more hydroelectricity and nuclear energy in the state’s renewable portfolio.

But he says while these long-term solutions are important, the state needs to focus on short-term relief too.
