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 utility providing every resident’s energy needs, the state would allow residents to choose from a marketplace of suppliers and plans.

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. Now, energy deregulation in Waterbury allows consumers to choose their own retail energy supplier at a price that fits their budget.
