Waterbury energy deregulation

In May 1998, the State of Connecticut passed legislature to deregulate the energy market. In short, this means that instead of a single company providing every resident's energy needs, the state would allow residents to choose from a marketplace of suppliers. Like any business, if only one company offers a product, they can charge a higher price because of demand. Before energy deregulation, the utility company had the ability to charge a high rate for their services, knowing that the consumer would have no choice but to pay. However, energy deregulation in Waterbury has allowed consumers to choose their own supplier.

Under deregulation, energy is still transmitted and distributed by a single utility or wires company in Waterbury; however, customers can pick from a slew of energy providers. Connecticut Light & Power is the primary utility service provider for residents and business owners. Connecticut Light & Power serves more than a million customers in the state and is one of the largest energy providers in the nation.
