Recently I shared some of Wethersfield’s Green Energy initiatives with the Wethersfield-Rocky Hill Rotary Club. Many concerned citizens want to be “greener,” and to save money, but often times they don’t know where to start.
Here’s a quick tip – shop around for lower electricity rates. Didn’t know you could? You aren’t alone.
Laws deregulating electric utilities in CT have separated generators of electricity from distributors of electricity. What this means is that previously, a company like the Connecticut Light and Power Company could create electrical power, distribute it, and bill its customers at government-controlled rates. Following deregulation, CL&P became a distributor only. Other companies entered the field of electric generation. While CL&P alone bills the customer, it collects fees for both itself and the firm the customer has selected as the generator.
