State Attorney General George Jepsen and Consumer Counsel Elin Swanson Katz are alerting consumers to new lower electric generation rates that take effect Tuesday for residential and business customers of Connecticut Light & Power Co. and United Illuminating Co.
CL&P's generation service rate for residential customers will drop by about 0.7 cents to 7.615 cents per kilowatt hour. Business customers will see a similar reduction.
For the average residential customer who uses CL&P as their electricity supplier, monthly generation service charges could drop by about $5 a month. Similar UI customers could see a drop of approximately $7.50 per month.
