Sen. Hwang: Remove “camouflaged costs” out of CT electric bills

State Senator Tony Hwang said he wants to remove what he calls the “camouflaged costs” – out of customer bills, that don’t involve electric supply or delivery.

He has advocated putting public policy charges for energy efficiency and assistance into the state budget instead – something that could reduce electric bills by 5% or more.

“Take away the fringe benefit cost that they’re doing, quote unquote, for the benefit of the consumer, when they don’t fully always benefit from it, make it a transparent legislative process,” Hwang said.
