    Deregulated Electricity Rates in Cheshire

    Electricity in CT has been deregulated since the early 1990s. You can choose your electricity supply from the utility or you can choose an alternative supplier, licensed by the state.

    No matter who supplies your electricity, the same utility company delivers it to your home and issues your bill. There’s no change in poles or wires. And the same company responds if the lights go out.

    Eversource’s current standard service offer is 14.714¢ per kWh. That’s your rate from January 1 – June 30, 2024 if you don’t shop for a supplier.

    And, this rate changes every 6 months. By shopping for a supplier, you can get a secure rate that won’t change.
