This fee is normally twice the amount of the electricity supplied to any National Grid Customer. The PSC “Public Service Commission” has received many complaints from the public about the monopoly that is National Grid, and they have failed to act on behalf of the consumers while this fee has soared to twice the amount of supply.
National Grid customers are given a choice about where they can get their supply of electricity and gas from but they are stuck paying double that amount and more to National Grid for the delivery of their energy. National Grid will tell you it is based on the amount needed to maintain the lines, but let’s be clear were paying an awful lot for nothing here, and in reality all this UK- based company has seen is profit’s since they arrived in Upstate New York and took over Niagara Mohawk.
Energy has become so expensive here people are starting to look into other resources and alternatives, but for now National Grid is winning this so-called Monopoly game and are the proud owners of our Utility Company.
