Easton Utilities Proposed Electricity Rate Hike

“For the first time in ten years, Easton Utilities is proposing a rate increase of about 4.8-percent for their customers’ electricity usage. President and CEO Hugh Grunden says that, “”With the considerable increase in expenses ranging from materials to health care, we must adjust rates.”” He points out that customers are still paying an average 9-percent less than customers served by other providers in the area.”
