What Does This Mean for Connecticut Customers?
Impact for natural gas customers
Each month, we purchase natural gas from suppliers to meet customers' energy needs. Our customers pay what we pay—with no profit to Eversource. We expect the cost of gas to remain at higher-than-normal levels through the course of the heating season.

Impact for electric customers
Beginning January 1, customers who are signed up for the Standard Service Supply option will see an increase on the supply side of their electric bill. An average residential customer using 700 kWh of electricity per month could see a 21% or $31 increase. This new rate will be in effect from until June 30.
We seasonally adjust the Standard Service Supply twice each year. This rate reflects the cost of electricity we purchase on your behalf. Like natural gas, this cost is directly passed through to Standard Service customers with no profit to Eversource.
