[NEWS] Ratepayer Costs for Berlin, New Hampshire Biomass Facility Revealed
– by Chris Jensen, November 20, 2017, InDepthNH.org
Eversource customers paid $52.3 million more than necessary between November of 2013 and last April due to a controversial contract between the utility and the biomass-burning Burgess BioPower plant in Berlin.
That additional cost, which is being passed along to customers, is projected to grow to $100 million by April of 2020, if not sooner.
The affected customers buy their electricity directly from Eversource. Customers who buy from other suppliers, but are billed through Eversource, are not impacted.
The figures come from Frederick B. White, an Eversource official.
