New A/C Surcharge Effective 10/1/17

For tenants paying a surcharge for A/C units, the monthly cost per unit has been reduced to $26.02 effective October 1, 2017. The state agency Homes and Community Renewal sets the charge every year using information from the Rent Guidelines Board’s 2017 Price Index of Operating Costs. According to the agency’s Operational Bulletin 84-4, the charge was “decreased to reflect a 2.35% decrease in the price of electricity” for buildings where electricity is included in the rent.
