Sen. Hwang opposes UI’s proposed 30% rate hike

Sen. Tony Hwang is opposing a proposal by United Illuminating (UI) that would call for a 30% increase of electric distribution charges to the ratepayer over the next three years.

“Energy costs in Connecticut are the highest in the nation,” Sen. Hwang said. “These potential hikes are unacceptable and unaffordable. A 30% hike over three years will hurt our most vulnerable residents. I urge consumers to join me in urging that state of Connecticut regulators to turn out the lights on these proposed hikes.”
