Hartford energy deregulation

Connecticut instituted its deregulated market in 1998 after the state legislature passed a law ordering the restructuring of utility companies. When the law came into effect on January 1, 2000, new suppliers were able to enter the utility market to give consumers the power of choice.

Prior to this restructuring, consumers were forced to have all their energy needs handled by the predominant supplier Connecticut Light & Power. The goal of energy deregulation in Hartford was to force competition and decrease energy prices. Now, more than ten years into this new law, consumers have greater choice and more control over their energy needs.

Hartford utility companies & energy providers

Deregulation of the energy industry gives consumers access to several energy companies. Instead of only having one utility supplier to choose from, consumers can now select from various Hartford energy providers, choosing the best rate and best service for their money.

Connecticut Light & Power (CL-P) serves Hartford’s utility service area. The utility company delivers energy while the providers are responsible for the payment, processing and sale of the energy required. While energy must be delivered by CL-P, consumers can choose which supplier that energy comes from. Choose Energy has partnered with the region’s best energy companies, including Public Power and North American Power to give customers the power to make informed decisions about what is best for their needs.

Hartford renewable energy

The state of Connecticut is focused on finding alternative and renewable sources of energy to fuel its needs. Hartford remains committed to renewable energy sources, such as wind power, geothermal power, hydropower and more. Leading the charge for renewable energy in Hartford is North American Power, which has partnered with Choose Energy. They provide green energy that will help save the environment while saving their customers money.
