Eversource Energy, National Grid and Unitil have filed proposals in response to a requirement that they file grid modernization plans to reduce the effects of power outages, optimize demand — including reducing system and customer costs — integrate distributed resources and improve workforce and asset management.

National Grid presented the DPU with four five-year options that range from $225.3 million to $830.5 million, and up to $1.3 billion over ten years. The more expensive options include providing the company’s 1.3 million customers with smart meters.

So how do they recoup the 1.3 billion….. guess who gets higher electric bills even when they claim this saves energy…. so your meter reading goes down but the base rate skyrockets so what benefit it is to us, the customer?
