High electric bills and what can be done about rates and energy use
Mainers are seeing high electric costs on their latest bills, reflecting the new supply rate. We discuss why rates are high, how they are set, and what rate payers can do to try and defray costs. We’ll examine the role the PUC plays, and what options consumers have when selecting their electricity supplier. We’ll also learn about state resources that can help consumers with their electric bills and energy conservation.
