Unitil Files for an Increase in Natural Gas Distribution Rates for New Hampshire Customers
Unitil has requested an increase of $4.7 million in base revenue, or an increase of approximately 7 percent over total operating revenue. The filing includes a request for temporary rates effective August 1, 2017. A final order on the filing is expected in mid-2018. The filing also includes a proposal for a multi-year rate plan which would provide for the recovery of costs associated with operational and safety-related improvements and upgrades Unitil is making to its gas distribution system in New Hampshire over the next several years.
If the rates are approved as filed, the typical residential gas heating customer using an average of 62 therms would see a monthly increase of $10.10, or about 10 percent. Impacts on other individual customers will vary depending upon rate class and usage characteristics.
