Attorney General Tong Statement on Superior Court Decision Affirming PURA Rejection of Aquarion Rate Hike

(Hartford, CT) – Attorney General William Tong released the following statement regarding the Superior Court decision affirming the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority rejection of Eversource-owned Aquarion’s $36 million rate hike request.

“This is a resounding affirmation of PURA’s well-reasoned, pro-consumer rejection of Aquarion’s unsubstantiated multi-million-dollar rate hike demand. Aquarion sought excessive, unsupported profits, unnecessary ratepayer-supported bonuses, and unwarranted reimbursement for incomplete infrastructure projects. The company failed to meet its burden both before PURA and the court,” said Attorney General Tong.
