Starting in May, electric and gas utilities began notifying residential customers with unpaid and/or past-due balances that if they do not take action and contact their utility to enroll in a payment plan, they are at risk of having their services terminated. If your household has received a notification from your utility company, please contact them directly to set up a payment plan to keep your services on. These plans charge no interest, and all customers qualify at least once for one or more of these plans. After engaging with utility providers, customers may also contact PURA’s customer affairs unit for specific questions regarding payment arrangements. View eligibility, utility contact information:

Program Overview

The Connecticut Innovative Energy Solutions (IES) Program was established through PURA Docket No. 17-12-03RE05, PURA Investigation into Distribution System Planning of the Electric Distribution Companies – Innovative Technology Applications and Programs, and is designed to identify, pilot, and scale innovative technologies that help enable a decarbonized, affordable, and equitable electric grid for Connecticut.

The first IES Program Cycle launched on January 20, 2023, by soliciting concept proposals from innovators. Visit the IES Portal for updates on future funding rounds.
