    Hi Folks,

    Question for those of you who live in Massachusetts.

    Our electricity rate is pretty high in this region.

    Through Eversource (formally NSTAR), I'm paying:
    $0.15/kWh generation charge
    $0.086/kWh delivery charge

    Do any of you know of any alternative plans, which better suit EV charging, or do you just suck it up and say its still cheaper than gas?

    Note I do get random Ads from alternate electricity providers, offering low intro rates for a period of time, and variable rates afterwards. They do not strike me as being good deals.

    That's what I pay out here in Western MA. I would be very cautious when looking at other providers. Do your homework. I hear many horror stories about people get the rates hiked when the introductory pricing is over. I would be very interested in knowing if there is a TOU here in MA that would be cheaper? I charge mine at around 4-6 AM.
