PURA 101 Workshops



The Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA or the Authority) has made education about the quasi-judicial agency and the regulatory process a high priority. That’s why PURA 101 Workshops, presented by Chairman Marissa Gillett and key senior staff, are being offered to any local or statewide groups interested in learning more about the Authority.

To request a PURA 101 presentation on site or via Zoom, compose an email to Joe.Cooper@ct.gov. In the request, please include a preferred time, date range, location, target audience, and topics you would like the Authority to highlight. Please note that prospective organizers are responsible for securing in-person locations for workshops.
