Summer electric bill shocker coming

Daniella Genovese writes in Fox Business on increased electric costs for the summer.

The C3 Take
  • Experts expect electric bills to increase this summer, in some places by as much as 16%.
  • New England will be the most impacted, followed by the Mid Atlantic and South Atlantic, respectively.
  • Inflation and supply chain constraints with natural gas are the primary driver of these increased costs.
  • Reducing regulations to allow for more domestic energy production would lower prices in the intermediate to long term.
