Staff Attorney 1  The Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) is looking to hire a Staff Attorney 1 in New Britain, Connecticut.

The Staff Attorney 1 (SA1) will assist in providing legal jurisprudence, guidance and subject matter expertise to the Education and Outreach Unit of the office of Education, Outreach and Enforcement (EOE), to ensure the timeliness, accuracy, and risk mitigation in serving regulated utility customers in Connecticut when they contact PURA. Given the increases in volume and technical complexity of complaints and inquiries, this position will provide dedicated legal expertise rooted in Connecticut’s statues and regulations in support of daily inquires with consumers related to customer disputes, mediation, education, and outreach. The SA1 will also support other EOE legal work such as reviewing and drafting legal documents, legal research, analysis, participating in working groups, and supporting enforcement actions, and other legal work.

The selected candidate will play a crucial role on upcoming assignments associated with PURA's implementation of its Equitable Modern Grid Initiative and key portions of Public Act 20-5, known as the "Take Back Our Grid" Act, including but not limited to, investigations into the utilities' preparation for and response to major storm events; a deep dive into the distribution interconnection procedures employed by the electric utilities; and inspections and audits into the regulated electric, gas, and water utilities, and telecommunications companies.

For more information regarding the impact and potential associated with being a member of the EOE, applicants are encouraged to review recent publications regarding the office’s accomplishments, such as this November 18, 2021 article.
