Deregulated Energy in Connecticut

In Connecticut, residents and business owners can cut costs with a deregulated energy plan instead of going with high-priced plans from traditional utilities. The deregulated energy system in Connecticut gives energy customers control by removing the utility companies’ monopoly on energy supply; instead, national retail energy suppliers offer Connecticut customers great rates and reliable contracts so everyone can feel confident in their energy choice.


It really matters when you look at the utilities’ Connecticut electricity rates. For example, the utility company Eversource Energy currently has a price to compare at this writing of 9.414 ¢/kWh, and that will likely change July 1. The® marketplace offers 15 plans that beat the Eversource rate – one undercuts it by 27 percent.


The other major utility in the state is United Illuminating, and its Connecticut electricity rates are even higher – 10.5607 cents/kWh.

Why choose deregulated energy?

Deregulated energy markets have emerged in over 15 states and territories across the United States since the 1990s. The reason millions of customers have switched to deregulated energy is that it ensures the highest quality of energy service at an affordable and consistent rate. Most retail suppliers offer customers at least one of the following plan options:

  • Fixed-rate plan
  • Variable-rate plan (AKA floating plans)
  • Renewable or green energy plan
  • Home Services
  • Renewable Energy Credits (RECs)


Who provides my power?

Our partnership with Choose Energy makes switching to a deregulated plan fast and simple. Once you’ve chosen a plan from the selection in your area, your new supplier will communicate directly with your local utility to set up your service.

Your utility will still deliver electricity to your home or business just like it always has, and it will pass through distribution and other fees the way it always has. The only change you’ll experience is the price you pay on your monthly energy bill for energy generation. If you experience a power outage or other emergency, contact your utility company directly.
