Public Service Commission confirms New Yorkers are going to pay a lot more to heat homes this winter: How much higher will your bill go?

State officials with the Public Service Commission are confirming what energy providers have been saying for weeks: It’s going to cost a lot more to heat your home this winter.

According to News10NBC, who reported the PSC’s latest expectations, said the average residential electric customer will pay $75 per month, or 42% more than last year. The average natural gas customer will spend around $240 per month, or 29% more than last year.

Parts of Upstate New York could see slightly lower bills, but it’s not a guarantee. A variety of factors go into billing by region.

Another factor regulators are watching: Weather.

If it’s colder-than-normal – it could spell even higher prices.

Applications for the Home Energy Assistance Program open November 1st. To qualify, a family of four must have a maximum gross annual income of $65,829.
