Statement from Attorney General Jepsen on
UI’s Intent to File for Electric Rate Increase
Attorney General George Jepsen today released the following statement on United Illuminating’s notice of intent to file an application for a rate increase, which was filed with the state Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) this afternoon:
“Connecticut’s electric rates remain extremely high. Any and every proposal to increase those rates must be thoroughly scrutinized. My office will participate in this proceeding, and I will urge PURA to approve rates that are no more than just and reasonable, as required by law.
“While I understand the need to upgrade infrastructure and resiliency following the major storms our state has experienced, every proposed expense must be – and will be – carefully reviewed and evaluated.”
