Electricity

The Connecticut Department of Public Utility Control allows customers of Connecticut Light and Power and United Illuminating to choose alternate electric suppliers. The utilities sold their power plants to open up the industry to competition and now only own the transmission and distribution wires. Customers who do not choose an alternate electric provider receive default supply from the utility.

Natural Gas

Business customers in Connecticut can choose an alternative natural gas provider. Utilities can prevent a customer from switching if the load reduction makes planning system operations difficult. Customers who do not choose an alternate gas supplier receive default sales service from their utility. Under default sales service, customers pay a “commodity charge” which varies as often as monthly.
