Did You See the Notice in Your Electric Bill from UI?

United Illuminating is requesting permission from the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) to increase their electric rates 8%. If approved, the bill for the average residential customer will be raised $16.63 a month. Many people can’t afford their electrical bills as is! Let PURA know what you think of this increase request! In December, there will be two Zoom hearings in which you can participate.  1- Tuesday, Dec. 13 at noon. Register at ctdeep.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZYtcuGvqzMuGtQLJ0g8YoslFHhuja6jXuXM

2- Thursday, Dec. 15 at 7 p.m. Register at ctdeep.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0sd-uvpzMsE92fo03vV7n1obVu8TQoud4l

Update: UI sent the notice in the October bills that the monthly increase to expect in January is $16. Seems the notice is already outdated – the New Haven Register reported that we can expect an $83 per month increase to start in January (for the “average” 700 kWh/month).

  • Are there green energy companies included in this increase? If so, why is there an increase? If not, why aren’t they included?

  • I am a recent retiree, living off a pension monthly. The hike in the yes, the utility bill would leave me to choose to pay my utilities or purchase my prescribed medication. It is totally unfair for seniors, living off of low income to face such a tragic move once we get older, what do you do? Have heat or purchase your medicine? We need to desperately change this
    thank you

  • Yes I will participate in the raisings prices of the electric bill

  • Taras Schevchenko

    How about letting Vladimir Putin know what you think about the increase in energy prices.

    Or, are communists not allowed to criticize Russia…
