Connecticut Energy Deregulation

Connecticut deregulated electricity markets in 2000 and gave consumers an option to choose a third party electricity supply company. The Connecticut Department of Public Utility Control (DPUC) adopted legislation PA 98-28 in 1998, that ordered state utilities to unbundle their supply and delivery services and open electricity markets to competition. Since then over six hundred thousand households took advantage of the available options and switched to an alternative energy supplier. These customers account for 40% of all electricity sold in the state. The Connecticut migration rate to competitive suppliers is one of the highest in the nation growing by 4-5% annually. Additionally, Connecticut adopted a renewable portfolio standard requiring all alternative electricity providers to sell certain amount of energy from renewable sources.
