CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – If you’re a National Grid customer, you’ll see a significant decrease on the bill for this month.
National Grid cut their electric supply rates as of May 1st. So, if you get your electricity from National Grid, you can expect to see an average decrease of about $32 on your total bill. That’s a 26% savings compared to this past winter.
However, compared to one year ago, you’ll actually pay 12% more this May.
“The supply part of the bill went down from winter time, but it didn’t go back down quite to the level that we saw last summer,” said National Grid spokesman Jake Navarro. “It’s really due to the constraints of the natural gas pipelines in the region.”
Like Eversource, National Grid resets their rates every six months. So this November, your rates will likely increase, as they did last November. That’s when National Grid customers saw an increase of about 37%.
Navarro said it is typical to see rates increase in the winter months, and decrease in the summer months.
