The State of Connecticut deregulated the electricity market. What this means is that Connecticut residents can use third party electricity generation suppliers.
I remember when I was at a Chamber of Commerce meeting, and the electric company representative assured everyone that deregulation would lower rates.
It didn’t work out that way. Connecticut has some of the highest rates for electric power in the country.
I had switched to a third party supplier, several years ago. As is common, the supplier offered a low rate for several months. The low rate is a teaser rate. Watch out after the teaser rate end. You may be surprised to find that your rate goes way up, higher than you have ever seen.
After reviewing my bill, I switched back to United Illuminating.
