“The revamped design of our new utility bill is in direct response to customers who have told us they would appreciate a more user-friendly format,” said Penni Conner, Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Officer at Eversource.

Features of the new, full-color bill include a personalized graph illustrating customers’ month-by-month electric and gas usage history with an approachable, quick-reference summary, as well as a clear presentation of the amount due, due date, and supply and delivery charges.

A new section will feature updates and tips for customers, such as information about tools available to enhance a home’s energy efficiency. And Budget Billing customers will find a helpful overview of their budget amount and payments.

“We are always working to improve and continually seeking new solutions to enhance the ways our customers interact with us,” Conner said. “With the understanding that our customers lead busy lives, we want to make managing payments and energy use as easy as possible.”

Eversource customers in Connecticut will receive their newly designed bill starting this week.
