One organization that did not sign on was Rosendale-based Citizens for Local Power, which objected in particular to the increase in the flat monthly hookup charge from $24 to $29 for electric service, which would disproportionally affect smaller customers.

For example, the average electric customer would pay $1.16 more per month in year one despite the hookup charge increasing by $3.)
