We Can Speak Out Against Higher Electricity Rates

August 21, 2014

Our electricity rates are already too high, but they could go even higher.

CL&P is seeking a proposed rate hike of 5.9 percent.

If the rate hike is approved, the average non-heating residential customer’s monthly bill would increase by $12.48.

I am opposed to this proposed increase. Are you?

State officials will soon hold public hearings on the proposed rate increase and then issue a decision in December.

  • You can email your comments as soon as possible to [email protected] .
  • CC your email to me at [email protected] .
  • Please put “Docket Number 14-05-06” in the email’s subject line.
  • Your comments on the rate hike proposal can be as brief as you like.

The hearings will be held Aug. 27 at 10 Franklin Square, New Britain; Aug. 28 in the Stamford Government Center, 888 Washington Boulevard; and Sept. 3 in New London City Hall. They will all take place at 6:30 p.m.

I hope you will join me in speaking out.
