Too bad Wallingford Electric doesnt allow solar panels. My Eversource bill is $9.25 a month.

Though I had to buy 200 kwhs in Jan due to less sun and colder temps.

I did the math and after all the fees it was .26 a kwh. Looking at the energy information data we literally have the most expensive electricity on par with Alaska and Highway. Those 2 states are secluded and use alot of diesel generators. Crazy we residents pay close to the same rate.

The data is eye opening.

Don't count the $9.21 service charge when figuring your rate, you have to pay that as long as you are tied to the grid....My rate for using Eversource was 20.7 cents - still too high...

I moved here from Texas last year. We were paying $0.05 per kwh (average for the combined commodity and delivery charges). The electricity rates here are ridiculous.

The up front cost of solar for Wallingford would take a very long time to see a meaningful result in comparison to other towns woth their utilities. It’s fun to walk into HD and have the solar guy ask where we live and wave his hand moving on as he knows their cost/benefits cannot compete with our setup.
