    Deregulation in Southington CT – Utility vs. Supplier

    Electricity in CT is deregulated. That means you can purchase your electricity supply from your utility, Eversource Connecticut, or from an energy supplier licensed by the Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority. (PURA).

    If you purchase your electricity from Eversource, you’ll pay the standard service rate, which changes twice a year on January 1st and July 1st.

    July 1 – December 31, 2024, the Eversource Standard Service rate (Rate 1 and Rate 5) is 8.995¢ per kWh.

    Compare that to the rates below from suppliers. These are fixed rate plans where your rate won’t change for the term of your contract agreement.
