Understanding the Eversource Rate Hike: A Wake-Up Call for Connecticut Homeowners

As a homeowner in Connecticut, you've likely felt the pinch of rising utility costs. In fact, over the past year and a half, Eversource, the state's largest utility provider, has increased its rates by a staggering 150%. In an attempt to provide some relief, Eversource has recently decreased their supply rates by 15% as of July 1 this year. However, it's crucial to understand the full picture – while the supply rates have decreased, distribution rates have increased. Moreover, a whopping 30% increase is already scheduled for January 1st.

The question is, are we really saving, or are we being led to believe so?

### The Truth Behind the Rate Changes

When you examine your utility bill, you'll find that it's divided into two main sections: supply and distribution. While a decrease in supply rate sounds like a good thing, it's essential to remember that the distribution rates have concurrently increased. This is a classic shell game maneuver, creating the illusion of savings on one end while costs rise on the other.

### The Long-Term Impact

In the long run, these rate changes can have a significant impact on your monthly bills. Even with the 15% decrease in supply rates, the scheduled 30% increase in distribution rates is a cause for concern. Simply put, despite apparent decreases, your utility costs are poised to continue their upward trajectory.
