National Grid to assist low-income customers
The Public Service Commission has approved a National Grid plan to give bill credits to some of its poorest customers, people who have struggled the most with power bills that were far highter than ususal last winter. A spokesman for the company tells CBS6 bills in May will also be somewhat higher than normal and then back to their usual levels in June.
According to Stephen Brady, a spokesman for National Grid, about 110,000 customers will receive a credit of twenty dollars.
Brady says around 4,000 customers who are part of a discount program called AffordAbility will get the twenty as well as a one-time credit of $250.00. He estimated another 6,000 will receive a $250 credit through the company's program called Share and Care, where shareholders will provide one million dollars.
