BERLIN - Eversource customers in Connecticut who are signed up for the company’s Standard Service generation rate will see a slight increase on their electric bills beginning July 1. The Public Utilities Regulatory Authority approved the new residential Generation Service Charge of 8.01 cents per kilowatt-hour, up from the current 7.87 cents per kilowatt-hour. The increase is primarily due to higher energy prices being driven by a reduction in the number of electric generation facilities available in the region.

The new generation rate will be in effect from July 1 to Dec. 31.
