Story | Aug 26, 2014 | 2:21 PMThumbs down to Connecticut Light & Power for proposing an outrageous increase in its fixed monthly customer charge. It's suggesting a 59 percent hike in its flat-rate service charge. What?! That would increase a consumer's bill by $114 per year, hiking it from $16 a month to $25.50, regardless of how little energy the customer may use. The company says the rate request is "to make important capital investments in Connecticut's electric infrastructure." But compare the CL&P rate to Boston Edison's fixed charge of $6.43 monthly and the Western Massachusetts Electric Co. charge of $6 — all of them subsidiaries of Northeast Utilities. CL&P's proposal is unfair to all its customers, but especially to those of limited means.
