ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – The Public Service Employees Service, which organizes New York-based suppliers, approved a request Wednesday by the National Grid to delay payment on the prices they planned for April 1.
The National Grid’s electricity increase of nearly $ 90 million and the $ 21.5 million gas increase were pushed back on July 1, affecting approximately 2.25 million customers. The benefit would be to preserve the benefits that customers receive at the current level and look at certain costs.
For clarity, note that the block represents each investment. The National Grid has received the right to reclassify the planned rate hike. The increase will still go into effect, but three months later.
The Commissioner also later authorized New York American Water to suspend the previously approved increase in September affecting customers in Washington, Ulster, Sullivan, Putnam, Westchester, and Nassau Counties.
The Department of Labor says it will request more projects to focus on increasing inflation, though the National Grid at NYAW is the only greenhouse gas emission reduction plan on April 1.
Other states of the state – Con Edison, Central Hudson, Orange and Rockland, New York State Electric and Gas, Rochester Gas and Electric, PSEG Long Island and National Petroleum — have closed to customers.
