Understand your electric bill and options available

The Office of Consumer Counsel and AARP will jointly present a program, “Know Your Rights” geared toward helping people understand their electric bill and the different options available to purchase electricity.

OCC is an independent Connecticut agency whose purpose is to advocate on behalf of utility customers.  The program will take place at the Bigelow Center, 100 Mona Terrace, Fairfield, on Friday, Nov. 6, at 10:30 a.m. and is free of charge.  Advance registration is required by calling 203-256-3166, from 9-3:30.

This program will review legislative updates affecting consumers including recent additions to the electric bill that provide consumers with more information to evaluate their options.  In addition, this program will explain the difference between remaining with Eversource, formerly the Connecticut Light & Power Company (CL&P), or the United Illuminating Company (UI) for generation service, or choosing a licensed electric supplier in the retail market.

For those who elect to shop in the retail market, this program will describe how to shop for the most competitive rates while avoiding often tricky terms and conditions that may include high rates, enrollment fees, and cancellation fees.

Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and bring their electric bills.

The Bigelow Center is accessible to people using assistive devices.  Transportation is available by calling a few days in advance to:  203-256-3168.
