What Does This Mean for Eversource Customers?
Impact for natural gas customers
Each winter and summer, we purchase natural gas from suppliers to meet customers' energy needs. Because inventories are down and global demand is high, prices are rising significantly. Our customers pay what we pay—with no profit to Eversource.
A cost of gas increase went into effect on November 1, 2021.

Impact for electric customers
Beginning January 1, customers who are signed up for the Basic Service Supply option will see an increase to their electric bill. An average residential customer using 500 kWh of electricity per month could see between a 23% and 25% increase. This new rate will be in effect from January 1 until June 30.
We seasonally adjust the Basic Service Supply rate 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 Basic Service customers with no profit to Eversource.
