As winter approaches, RG&E customers may be bracing for higher utility bills. The New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) is slated to cast their vote on a proposed rate increase for RG&E this week.


Should the hike receive approval, customers might witness an average monthly surge of approximately $10.

RG&E cites the urgency to align with clean energy initiatives and ensure the continuity of future operations as the rationale behind the potential increase. The proposal emerges in the wake of mounting customer service complaints, a concern which RG&E claims to have addressed with recent improvements.
