March 22, 2019

Can you believe this? As if our state didn’t place enough fees, surcharges, and taxes on your electric bills, the Democrats are proposing to raise them once again in order to create the Connecticut Earth Bank. The bank would be funded by a fee of NOT LESS than 1/10 of 1 cent per kilowatt hour on all our electric bills.

So on top of tolls, a home heating oil tax, a cat tax, and a sales tax expansion, now the Democrats want to raise your electricity rates to fund “green infrastructure investment.”
