Because I have made some real estate plays with oil and gas mineral rights, I get all sorts of newsletters on the topics covering energy.
Most recent one has the whole sale cost of power off of the grid more than doubling in about 40% of the US between June and August.
If you haven't locked in an energy supplier yet and are using the provider of last resort, ahhhhhhh - you might want to beef up your utility bill as these additional cost are going to be passed on to you over the next few months. This forecast only goes out three months and is based on the specific grid you are on.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news
In the case of the Pa we will be going from $45 a MW to $101 MW. Places like California are even impacted by the extreme draught is creating creating the jump to be $67 to $98. The folks taking the biggest hit will be New England going from $50 to $153.
I am not sure how long anyone should lock in for though. Three months isn't long --24.101.xxx.xxx
