NYSEG Rates Could Increase In September
|Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Iberdrola, the parent company of Energy East, which owns NYSEG, is pushing for increased electric and gas rates by about $7.21 per month.|
Those changes could take effect as soon as September.
A top executive of Iberola, Kevin Walker, told WROC in Rochester, that he understands paying for heat and electricity is hard for some customers.
But Walker also believes raising the rates now will make energy more affordable down the road.
Residents in the Southern Tier can weigh in on the increases.
The Public Service Commission, which must approve the rate hike, will hold a public hearing on Monday, August 2 at the Broome County Public Library from 5 to 8 pm in the Decker Room.
