NEW YORK (WENY) – NYSEG is asking the state’s public utility commission for approval to raise rates.
The company announced it filed proposed rate changes, which would increase energy bills. According to NYSEG, the company wants to make infrastructure investments it says will help minimize the impacts of climate change.
The proposed “Reliable Energy NY” Plan proposed a 13 to 22 percent monthly increase on each bill.
That would increase the average electric bill by $10 to $18 per month. If approved, the rate increases would begin on May 1, 2023.
The proposal requires review by the state’s department of public service.
