UNIONDALE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Long Island Power Authority customers will see an increase in their electric bill this month.
The average single-family home will have to pay about $6.21 more in September. LIPA is citing higher energy costs during peak air-conditioning use for the latest hike.
“It’s just an increase in the power supply charge,” LIPA spokesperson Mark Gross told WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall. “LIPA is like any other utility in the state, in that it passes the power supply cost directly to our customers and these costs routinely go up and down from month-to-month on demand.”
