There is no gas-delivery rate increase for the first year. NYSEG says it has filed a proposed rate-case settlement with the New York Public Service Commission. In addition to this, gas-delivery rates will be increased by 0.8 and 1.6 percent in the second and third rate years. This will cause a monthly bill increase of $0.55 and $1.20 respectfully. The first-year rate increase is 4.6 percent, which translates to a 2.3 percent bill increase for NYSEG electric customers. The second and third-rate years, the company says its electric-delivery increase will be 9.1 percent each year, resulting in a monthly bill increase of $4.13 to $5.54. NYSEG says the settlement will also provide customers with COVID-19 relief, support for clean energy, investments into aging infrastructure and more. (WBNG) — Starting in October, NYSEG customers will pay an extra $2.49 for their electricity. The rate increases were scheduled for May of 2020, but were delayed due to the coronavirus.
