Pascoag Utility District Electric Rates to remain stable for the rest of 2008….
At the July 31st Open Meeting of the RI Public Utilities Commission, Pascoag Utility District’s request to not increase electric rates, for the remainder of 2008, was approved.
Several portions of the electric bill were adjusted to more accurately reflect the various charges incurred by PUD. However, the bottom line remains the same!
That means that a residential customer using 500 kilowatt-hours in a billing period will continue to pay approximately $71. This is the lowest cost for electricity in our state.
By comparison, a National Grid customer, using the same amount of electricity, would pay approximately $93.
The best way, of course, to lower your electric bill is to not use our product!
One way of helping you do this, is to take advantage of our FREE home energy audits.
When it is time to replace an electric appliance, always look for the Energy Star logo. Depending on funding availability, the price of the more energy efficient appliance is offset by Pascoag Utility District Rebates.
