Important Information Regarding Your Electric Bill

The Purchase Power Charge on your electric bill will be higher this month! The Purchase Power Charge is the variable portion of your electric bill and is a direct pass-through cost to the Village of Ilion Electric Department. National Grid shut down some of their subsations for maintenance, which resulted in electric congestion on transmission lines to our electric substation. This congestion leads to high electric cost to the Village of Ilion Electric Department, which in turn will be reflected on your next billing. We have been told that National Grid charges will drop to regular levels in September.
