Central Hudson customers: Speak up now or pay more later!

Central Hudson wants big increases in your electric and gas delivery rates - 13.6% for electric and 18.5% for natural gas – but they need approval from the Public Service Commission (PSC) first.

In addition to this double-digit rate increase proposal, Central Hudson wants to increase their fixed customer charges, which at $50 per month between gas and electric are already some of the highest in the state.

The bottom line is that this massive rate hike would hit Hudson Valley ratepayers hard, and is unneccessary at a time when the company just got a financial windfall in the way of huge reductions in their tax burden from the tax bill recently passed in Congress. Please take a moment to tell the PSC to stand up for consumers, pass these tax savings back to the ratepayers, and reject this rate hike.
