Residents are encouraged to not offer any credit or debit information over the telephone and to contact Eversource Customer Service at 1-800-286-2000.

Per Eversource, they WILL NOT conduct personal debt-collection but instead use an automated phone message system which instructs delinquent customers to call a debt collection number.
