The Facts on Proposed Energy Changes

Unfortunately, many people in New Haven have been receiving incorrect information on a proposed bill before the legislature that would allow Dominion Resources to change how it sells the energy generated by the Millstone Nuclear Power Station.


Supporters argue the bill will allow Millstone to stay profitable and remain open while lowering energy costs for electricity.

However, opponents of the bill believe it will actually cost ratepayers more money. In addition, they believe the bill will create unnecessary increased profits for Dominion and protect it from disclosing future earnings on the deal.

While I have reservations about the bill, I am more concerned about false rumors and misinformation. To make Connecticut a progressive place for all citizens, we must stick to the truth.
