Danbury energy rates

Located just an hour outside of New York City, Norwalk is one of the largest cities in the state of Connecticut, with a population of 85,603. Since it is considered a part of the New York metropolitan area, it is crucial that residents and business owners in Danbury have access to affordable, efficient, and high-quality energy.

Due to the unpredictable nature of New England weather, energy rates in Danbury fluctuate depending on the season. For example, rates are usually the highest during the winter months and cheapest in the early spring or fall. Danbury energy rates vary in price from 7.99 cents/kilowatt hr. to 11.94 cents/kilowatt hr.

Danbury energy deregulation

Prior to energy deregulation legislation being passed, the utility market was dominated by a single company that was responsible for handling every aspect of a person's or business' energy requirements, including delivery, transmission, payment, and sales. Since the energy market was dominated by a single company, this entity had a virtual monopoly on the market and could set their own price. Energy deregulation in Connecticut has led to the introduction of new competitors in the energy market. More competition means more choice and less expensive monthly bills for the customer.

It should be noted that a single utility company is still responsible for the transmission and distribution of energy; however, Danbury customers can now shop for their own energy supplier. Due to energy deregulation, customers in Danbury can compare prices from a variety of vendors based on price and service.

Danbury utility companies & energy providers

Despite energy deregulation having ushered in an era of competition in the choice of an energy supplier, energy is still transmitted and delivered by a single utility company. Connecticut Light & Power is the primary wires company in Danbury.

Due to energy deregulation, Danbury residents and business owners can now choose the best energy supplier and plan for their needs. Because CL&P only partners with the best, the utility company has entered into agreements with the most reliable suppliers in the region, like North American Power and Public Power. Since Danbury residents now have more choice in energy providers, they are all but assured of receiving lower rates and a better deal on their monthly bills.

Danbury renewable energy

Connecticut ranks 45th in the nation for electricity generated by renewable energy. Despite this disappointing ranking, Danbury and the state of Connecticut are committed to finding alternative sources of energy. To meet this goal, Connecticut passed a Renewable Energy Reform bill in May 2013. This bill will look to fund alternative energy initiatives, like wind power and solar power, while working to keep the cost of energy bills low.

Residents and business owners in Danbury who are looking for renewable energy will be happy to know that CL&P has partnered with North American Power to provide affordable and eco-friendly energy in the community.
