Avoid Potential 15% Energy Cost Hike, Here's How

The recently passed Clean Energy Jobs - Renewable Portfolio Standard Bill could bring utility rate increases between 14% and 18% as of October 1, 2019. However, the new legislation provided an enrollment grace period or "grandfather clause," that allows customers who negotiate energy use contracts prior to this date to be exempt from potential rate increases through the end date of the new contract.  
 
To help members avoid these potential increases, GSSCC and CQI, our energy co-op partner, are opening registrations now.  For more details, click here.
