SALEM - Four utilities in New Hampshire are offering programs to help their customers save money by lowering energy costs as electric rates are expected to soar this winter.
Liberty Utilities says it will have a 50-percent hike while Unitil says its rates will rise 44 percent. New Hampshire Electric Cooperative says its customers will see a 29 percent increase. Public Service of New Hampshire says its rates will remain stable.
The utilities have teamed up to offer "Button Up" workshops to provide energy-saving tips.
Increases for some utilities don't take effect until Dec. 1.
