Prices on electricity bills expected to rise

If you’ve been spending more on your electricity bill, it’s not just because you’ve been cranking up the air conditioner to combat this summer heat.

The price of electricity is skyrocketing nationwide, and unfortunately more price hikes are expected – starting as soon as Monday.

We’re now paying about 20 percent more than we did to cool our houses last year.

Starting Monday, some customers in Massachusetts, Connecticut and New Hampshire will see an increase of up to 50 percent.
