The price of electricity in Massachusetts doubled in 2005, then remained very high util late 2009. We saw a 25% decline in 2009, and since then the price is holding steady again. I switched from Mass Electric to NStar when we moved in 2005, but I doubt that this had any influence on the bigger picture.
