NYSEG Is Planning On Raising Rates, Here's How You Can Weigh In

Posted: Updated:

You could be seeing a higher energy bill come April 2020. 

NYSEG filed a rate case in May 2019 asking the Public Service Commission (PSC) for permission to increase gas and electric rates by 24-percent. The increase would take effect April 2020. 

The public can weigh in and share their thoughts on the increase to PSC on Thursday, August 15th at the Binghamton City Hall Council Chambers located at 38 Hawley Street. 

The public information session starts at 5 p.m. followed by public comments at 6 p.m. 

Comments from residents, businesses and local officials can range from experience with customer service, more renewable energy or incentives for heat pumps, or NYSEG’s proposal to raise electric rates by 24 percent

Issues such as reliability, power quality, responsiveness to service requests, scheduling and communications, and/or cost can be considered by the PSC as it deliberates whether NYSEG can raise its rates.

Broome County is encouraging the general public to attend to make sure PSC hears their opinions on the matter.

The county is also urging people from the construction and real estate communities, the commercial and manufacturing sectors, and municipal officials to attend.
