Winter Energy Prices



As you may be aware, effective November 1st, National Grid electric rates are set to increase by up to 37%. This increase in price is driven by an increasing reliance on natural gas for electricity generation and an increase in demand for natural gas region wide. In order to mitigate the increasing cost in energy, consider visiting for information on energy efficiency rebates and other cost-savings measures.

If you or someone you know is experiencing financial difficulties as the winter months approach, please read our Financial Assistance Summary as well as our Housing Assistance Summary (which contains contact information for assistance with utilities such as gas and electricity). Don’t forget to share our Veterans’ Benefits / Resources pages available at this location.
