Tell your legislators to demand Gov. Lamont stand up to Eversource & UI!

Eversource needs to be held accountable NOW! The special session convening this week will address the recent controversies surrounding Eversource’s outrageous rate increase and the failure of our utilities to restore power after the recent storm.

Using the letter provided- or in your own words, send a message to your legislators to demand that Governor Lamont stand up to Eversource and United Illuminating by immediately appointing a strong, independent Consumer Counsel to fight for us.

The Connecticut Public Utility Regulatory Authority (PURA) has opened dockets pertaining to taking another look at Eversource’s exorbitant rate hike and the failed storm response by Eversource and UI. Connecticut’s law provides ratepayers with an independent advocate, the office of Consumer Counsel, to fight for us in these proceedings. Unfortunately, the Governor and the legislature have not filled this important position for over a year.

A strong independent Consumer Counsel could save each of our families hundreds of dollars.

Utilities, suppliers, cable and phone companies spend millions lobbying in Connecticut and gutting the Consumer Counsel’s office has been a long time wish. We can’t let them win.

Please send your letter to your legislators TODAY!
