Who are my utility providers?
When you move into a new apartment, you need to ensure that the utility accounts are placed in your or your housemate's name. Utility companies will turn off service if they are aware that a new occupant is in an apartment who has not yet assumed ownership of the utility accounts.
To ensure uninterrupted service, contact your utility providers before the start of your lease. They will allow you to select a date in the future when the account ownership will be switched into your name.
Here are the most likely utility providers in your area:
Eversource: natural gas utility that may provide service for your heat, hot water, or stove.
National Grid: electric utility that may provide service for your heat or hot water as well.
Charter Spectrum: internet service provider that also provides landline telephone and cable television services.
