Regulatory Summary

06/08: The Connecticut Department of Public Utility Control finalized the selection of three projects to provide Connecticut with adequate electric peaking generation in accordance with Section 50 of Public Act 07-242. The three facilities are Bridgeport Energy II, GenConn (UI/NRG), and a PSEG facility to be located in New Haven Harbor, CT. Source: Connecticut Department of Public Utility Control

02/07: Governor M. Jodi Rell said she would introduce policies that were designed to change Connecticut's regulation of energy pricing and push for the creation of a state Department of Energy while reorganizing other state energy-related offices. The energy proposal was expected to be included in Rell's budget message to the Connecticut State Legislature. Rell's proposed new energy department was expected to take 70 jobs from the Connecticut Department of Public Utility Control and Office of Policy and Management and would be responsible for developing energy policies and working on the development of alternative and renewable resources.

06/06: The Department of Public Utility Control (DPUC) passed regulations requiring Connecticut utilities to hold multiple auctions for standard offer power supply.

01/06: Connecticut Light and Power submitted comments to the Department of Public Utility Control (DPUC) stating that the utility was greatly concerned with competition for retail choice throughout the state. The DPUC expressed these concerns in a report to state legislature.

9/05: Connecticut currently has eight companies that are actively marketing to businesses. Some of these companies give the option to participate in the CTCLeanEnergyOptions program.

1/05: Levco is aggressively pushing the residential generation market by offering a 5% discount in generation rates over CP&L's rates. This discount was made available starting January 1, 2005. CP&L has just raised rates over 10% on average using the bidding process for generation overseen by the Connecticut PUC.

1/04: On June 27, 2003, Governor John G. Rowland signed a law to establish Transitional Standard Offer (TSO) service, setting the rate offer at the 1996 level until December 31, 2006. The law went into affect on January 1, 2004.

The purpose of TSO is to keep electricity prices reasonable and stable while the market slowly transitions to a completely open market. It is hoped that this law will ensure Connecticut ratepayers stable electric rates and encourage competition.

9/99: The DPUC issued a rule that is aimed at preventing customers from switching back to Standard Offer Service (SOS) after switching to an alternative supplier when SOS is the least expensive alternative. The rule would provide a 12-month switching moritorium once a customer returns to SOS.

3/99: The DPUC began a consumer education effort sponsoring statewide presentations and ordering that, beginning in July, generation charges be shown separately on bills for the purpose of comparison with competitive offers. Retail competition is set to begin 1/1/2000 and suppliers could be licensed as early as July and begin soliciting business.

3/99: In February, the DPUC approved the sale of Connecticut Power &Light's non-nuclear assets, and in March it approved United Illuminating's sale of non-nuclear assets.

1/99: The Department of Public Utility Control (DPUC) is considering utilities' divestiture plans which were filed in late 1998, and stranded cost proposals filed in January.

7/95: CT DPUC issued a final report that calls for restructuring the electric power industry and gradually moving to retail competition.
