EverSource Has One of the Largest Electric Utilities I PremierImprovementsOne.com



EverSource is a publicly held, a Fortune 500 company based in Boston, Massachusetts, and Hartford, Connecticut, which offer retail electricity to homeowners and small businesses in the United States. The company offers three different kinds of services to customers, all of which are designed to make customers more efficient and save them money. In addition, EverSource also offers three different plans that are geared toward specific demographics. One of these plans is the Business Energy Pro tariff, which is designed for small businesses that generate less than fifty kilowatts of electricity and use such amounts of electricity only on occasion, or for commercial purposes only. The second kind of plan is the Personal Rate Increase Plan, which is more suited for people who use more electricity and use it on a more regular basis.


Customers can purchase either of these two types of plans, or a combination of plans, at anytime. However, some customers may have certain conditions where one of these options simply does not apply to them. Therefore, before starting the process of contacting EverSource to find out what kind of residential renewable energy deal you may be eligible for, please note that the following conditions may not apply to your particular situation.


First, please note that EverSource residential electricity customers will have access to a number of different natural gas suppliers. These natural gas providers include New England Power, Atlantic Power, EPCOT, or Clean coal. While it is possible to buy both of these energy sources from EverSource, some states may not allow natural gas to be sold through the electric meter in that state, which means that you would have to purchase your electricity from an electric supplier that is approved through EverSource in order to have access to natural gas. While this will cost you extra, it will also help you to have the freedom of choosing between different types of energy sources that may be available through EverSource.


Second, while EverSource will be offering the ability to purchase both types of fuels through the eversource transmission service, they will not be offering any of the three (out of three) transmission modes that are available through the eversource system. Those three transmission modes are DER, RING-E, and BES. For residential customers that need to connect to more than one meter, one of these three transmission methods will be necessary. Customers will have to contact EverSource to determine if they are eligible for any of these services after they have chosen the residential provider that they will use for their electric service. As long as a customer chooses to have either one of these services available to them, they will always have the option.


Third, residential customers will continue to have to pay the same rate per kilowatt hour for as long as they own the residence. EverSource will not raise rates until the current rate expires on all of their electric bill contracts. The expiration date will be based on each customer's billing cycle and will happen at the end of every year.


EverSource offers three different ways to contact their customer service representatives for additional information about their residential service. Customers can call EverSource at anytime during business hours or at any time of the day. At all other times of the day or night, customers can access the EverSource consumer portal by clicking on the EverSource logo located on the homepage of the company's website. EverSource's toll toll-free number is also available by clicking on the EverSource logo located on the homepage. All three of these toll-free numbers are listed in their consolidated billing document.
