Connecticut's Competitive Energy Landscape

Connecticut enjoys an energetically competitive market for electricity at retail. As of January 31, 2011, 602,349 customers representing 61% of the total statewide electric load, 87% of the entire large commercial and industrial electric load and 77% of the small and medium-sized commercial electric load is served by a competitive energy suppliers.

The ability to purchase competitively priced natural gas is limited to large industrial and commercial users who purchase and ship gas on the pipeline system.

RESA actively participates in proceedings before the Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority to help ensure customers continue to have access to innovative products and service offerings from competitive energy suppliers. This involves ensuring a level playing field for competition, such as making sure that utility default service offerings do not provide a disincentive for shopping from a competitive supplier.

RESA actively works to inform Connecticut lawmakers on legislative activities as part of its efforts to help ensure customers continue to have access to innovative products and service offerings from competitive energy suppliers. This involves ensuring a level playing field for competition, such as assuring customers continue to have access to market-based pricing and limited government role in establishment of electricity prices, and making sure that utility default service offerings do not provide a disincentive for shopping from a competitive supplier.
