Shelton Lawmakers Announce Forum on Electricity Rates

Posted on January 15, 2019 by admin


SHELTON – State Representatives Jason Perillo, Ben McGorty, and Senator Kevin Kelly will be hosting a PURA Informational Session for residents to learn more about their electric rates and to give them the opportunity to ask questions and express concerns. The forum will be held on Monday, January 28th, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Shelton City Hall Auditorium.

PURA representatives will explain the Energized Connecticut Program, talk about the process of how rates are set, the oversight process, and options available to users to verify kWh usage charges.

The lawmakers said they have heard from countless residents and businesses who are frustrated their electric rates increase yearly.

“This is a great opportunity for Shelton residents and businesses to learn more about their electric rates,” said Rep. Perillo. “Just like you I don’t like seeing these yearly increases in our electric bills. I encourage residents and businesses to attend this event.”

Rep. McGorty added, “Year-after-year increases to our electric rates are hurting many residents’ wallets. But, we do have options when it comes to choosing our electric supplier. It’s important for residents to learn the different options and to express their concerns to PURA about their approved increases.”
