Eversource, the largest energy provider in New England, is asking for a $96 million rate hike over two years. They say that it is necessary for maintaining the company's power line network, but Attorney General Maura Healey, who is opposed to the rate hike, says it could cost Massachusetts as much as $50 million per year.
