Statement from Attorney General Jepsen on
CL&P's Intent to File for Electric Rate Increase
 
 
Attorney General George Jepsen today released the following statement on Connecticut Light & Power's notice of intent to file an application for a rate increase with the state Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA):
 
“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."
