Statement from Attorney General Jepsen on UI’s intent to file for electric rate increase

HARTFORD – Attorney General George Jepsen today released the following statement on United Illuminating’s notice of intent to file an application for a rate increase, which was filed with the state Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) this afternoon:

“Connecticut’s electric rates remain extremely high. Any and every proposal to increase those rates must be thoroughly scrutinized. My office will participate in this proceeding, and I will urge PURA to approve rates that are no more than just and reasonable, as required by law.

“While I understand the need to upgrade infrastructure and resiliency following the major storms our state has experienced, every proposed expense must be – and will be – carefully reviewed and evaluated.”
