The New York State Public Service Commission is seeking public comments on a rate hike proposed by AVANGRID which is NYSEG’s parent company. According to the submitted request, as of April of 2020, the average residential electric bill would increase by just over $10 a month while the average residential natural gas bill would rise by just over a dollar a month. The City of Oneonta posted a link to the rate request at its Facebook page along with information on how to submit a comment.  Access that information here.
