    Deregulated Electricity Rates in Danbury

    Electricity in CT has been deregulated since the early 1990s. But many consumers in Connecticut haven’t shopped for their power. Eversource standard service rates change twice a year on January 1st and July 1st. Lately the rate changes have been quite volatile.

    The Eversource residential standard service rate is 8.995¢ per kWh from July 1 – December 31, 2024. Compare that to Eversource rate history and to the prices below.

    But you have options when it comes to electricity. Thanks to Connecticut electricity choice, you can shop for the best CT electricity rate from authorized alternative electricity suppliers for your home.

    FAQs About Electricity Prices in Danbury CT

    What percentage of consumers in Connecticut have switched to an electricity supplier?

    According to the Office of the Consumer Advocate, as of 2022, 90% of Eversource customers and 70% of UI customers are still with the utility rates. That means only a fraction of consumers have switched. When utility prices are low, that makes sense. But with high utility rates as of January 2023, it makes sense to shop around and compare electricity providers in CT.

    How hard is it to shop for an electricity supplier in CT?

    Shopping for an electricity supplier in CT is easy. You’ll continue to get your bill from your electric utility company, with your new electricity supplier listed as a line item on the bill.

Pick the lowest electricity price available. By law, there’s no early termination penalty for residential customers if you change your mind later and want to switch back to the utility. That makes shopping for an electricity provider a low risk way to save money.
