Electric Rate PetitionSign our petition against electric rate increases that will likely take effect this winter.

CL&P and UI announced significant increases in electric prices for January 1, 2015, and anticipated increases in distribution rates for later in the year.

Consumers are advised to budget for higher bills, take steps to conserve energy, and to use caution when shopping for better prices from electric suppliers.

  • Electric Customer’s
    Bill of Rights

    With anticipated increases in electric rates around the corner, you should be aware of several new laws concerning Connecticut’s electricity market. With this legislation we created greater transparency and increased protections for residential consumers by requiring electricity suppliers to provide very clear and specific information about how much they are being charged for electricity.

  • We passed new legislation that now imposes fines and penalties for reckless motorists who seriously injure or kill pedestrians and other users of public way. These “vulnerable users” include pedestrians, highway workers, cyclists, a person operating an agricultural tractor or farm implement, a blind person and his or her service animal, and others.

  • Connecticut
    Smart Start

    This year we passed a 10-year plan to provide 50,000 children with high-quality early education and set the state on a path toward universal pre-K. Competitive funding to achieve this goal will son be available for our cities and towns.

    As Other Small Businesses Fail, Fireside Supply Captures Bigger Market
    Harford Courant: Last year, Tarquinio took out a $228,518 subsidized loan and received a $100,000 grant from the state's Small Business Express program, to buy and renovate a second location in Colchester. He said he expanded for several reasons — he wasn't sure if he would be able to stay in the Hebron location after his parents' death, because he didn't know if he could buy out his siblings; he believed he couldn't grow in the amount of space he had in Hebron; and a competitor in Colchester went out of business.
