Manchester, NH (June 16, 2014) – A reduction in overall rates for Public Service of New Hampshire customers is expected beginning July 1st. PSNH has asked regulators to make a series of adjustments to various charges. If all of the requested changes are made, an average residential customer will see a monthly bill reduction of about three-tenths of a percent.
PSNH’s charges are set by state regulators to reflect the company’s actual costs. In its recent filing with the NH Public Utilities Commission, PSNH has requested reductions in its Distribution, Transmission, and Stranded Cost Recovery charges, and a slight increase in its Energy Service charge—to reflect higher energy costs experienced during the winter period.
