Get ready for another shock in your Con Ed bill - city residents could pay as much as 30 percent more for juice this summer.
Experts say higher fuel costs will bring an extra chill during this year's air-conditioning season.
Wholesale prices for electricity to be delivered to the city in July and August are now up a whopping 89 percent over last summer, according to federal regulators, although state regulators say the increase is no more than 66 percent.
Either way, utility experts predict the increases could translate into a potential 30 percent rate hike passed on to residential buyers.
And that's before Con Ed's latest demand for three straight years of 4.9 percent electricity-price increases, which it hopes will kick in next April.
Con Ed already charges the highest prices of any major US electric utility.
