Proposed rate hike from RG&E cut back, smaller increase for your bills

Local News

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) – A proposed rate high from RG&E is getting cut back.

The energy company and NYSEG were seeking to increase customer dollars per year for the next three years.

Now that proposal — which would have provided over $200 million for infrastructure improvements — will be cut to $65 million.

That means your bill will increase by less than 5% each year as opposed to 16%.

The new rate takes effect December 1.
