The Massachusetts DPU has approved new purchase of receivables discount rates (standard complete billing percentages) at Nstar (Eversource), effective May 1, 2019.
In doing so, the DPU approved Nstar's proposal to consolidate the POR discounts for its east and west (WMECO) service areas, for each customer class, into a single discount per customer class across its entire service area
The adopted May 1, 2019 Nstar Massachusetts POR discounts for all of Nstar's service areas are:
Nstar - East & West, May 1, 2019
Residential Commercial Industrial
Uncollectible 1.22% 0.19% 0.03%
Admin Cost 0.00% 0.00% 0.00%
Reconciliation -0.28% -0.07% [-0.11%]*
Total 0.94% 0.12% 0.03%*
