Have electric rates changed?

Pursuant to a greenhouse gas emissions reduction strategy adopted by the Concord Municipal Light Board in 2017, CMLP will implement a $0.01 per kilowatt-hour energy surcharge to all bills effective September 1, 2018. Simultaneously the credit available to rate payers qualifying for the Residential Service Rate Assistance rate will increase from $0.08883 to $0.1000. The NYPA line item credit increases from $0.0038 to $0.0250. 

The new energy surcharge will accelerate the pace at which CMLP converts its power supply from conventional to renewable sources. The NYPA Power Cost Adjustment is a credit received by CMLP for energy from New York hydropower projects built with federal funds. By law, savings from this low-cost power are divided among residential consumers.

Any questions regarding these adjustments should be directed to
