Compare electricity rates in Norwalk

Norwalk energy rates

Located in Fairfield County, Norwalk is the sixth most populous city in Connecticut and has a population of 89,005. Since it is only an hour from New York City, Norwalk is a popular community for people who work in the city. However, just as importantly, Norwalk is home to many businesses that help support the local economy. As a result, Norwalk requires access to affordable, efficient and reliable energy for both its residential and commercial members.

Since the New England climate can be incredibly unpredictable, it is typically best to purchase energy after the winter has ended in early April or before the snow begins to fall in early November. Energy rates in Norwalk vary in price from 8.19 to 10.95 cents per kilowatt hour depending on when customers buy.

Norwalk energy deregulation

Energy deregulation in Connecticut ushered in a new era of competition and choice for consumers when shopping for their energy needs. Prior to deregulation, Norwalk residents and business owners had their energy delivered, transmitted, and sold from a single company. While this may sound like the easiest and best way to purchase energy, this is far from the case because the utility company had a virtual monopoly on the market and could set an artificially high price. The passage of energy deregulation legislature means that consumers have many more choices when it comes to who supplies their energy. While a single company still delivers the electricity, customers can select from a pool of suppliers for their energy needs.

Norwalk utility companies & energy providers

Deregulation in Norwalk has completely changed the operating system for utility services. Prior to deregulation, the same utility service was responsible for the transmission, distribution, and sales needed for energy. Now, the utility company still delivers the electricity and manages the infrastructure, but customers can choose from a market of energy suppliers. Since these energy providers can set their own prices, consumers can shop for the best deal.

Connecticut Light & Power serves Norwalk’s utility service area. CL&P serves all of Connecticut and is the largest public utility company in New England. While energy must be delivered and transmitted by CL&P, Norwalk customers can choose who will supply their energy. Choose Energy has partnered with some of the most reliable and trusted companies, including North American Power and Public Power, to help consumers make that choice.

Norwalk renewable energy

Connecticut is looking to increase its emphasis of renewable energy power, and Norwalk residents and businesses are encouraged to join in the movement. The Norwalk headquarters of beverage company Diageo are run on 100 percent renewable energy and the city recently joined the statewide Sustainable CT initiative.

In order to help Norwalk residents and businesses choose to go green, Choose Energy has partnered with  North American Power as the city’s preferred supplier of green-friendly energy.
