  • Fixed rate electricity plans are the most popular electricity plans in Connecticut. When you are a utility ratepayer, your electricity rate changes twice a year. When you pick a fixed rate plan, you are guaranteed the same electricity rate every month for the duration of your contract term. And if the utility rate drops? Switch back with no penalty.

    About Standard Service Offer Electricity Rates in Connecticut

    Your local utility company (Eversource or UI) offers the Standard Service Offer (SSO). This rate changes twice a year, January 1st and July 1st. Your rate is based on how much money they spent procuring electricity on the wholesale market.  The Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) reviews and approves rates.

    You can check the Connecticut electricity rate history for standard service offers. Here are the current and historic Eversource electricity rates and UI electricity rates.

    Since the SSO rates change twice a year, it’s hard to estimate any savings you may get by switching. After all, no one knows what the next SSO will be. So no electricity supplier can make a savings claim, because it’s not an apples to apples comparison.

    But you can look at the history of utility rates in your area to get an idea of the direction that rates are taking.

    Switching to a new supplier lets you protect your electricity rate from inflation. And if the utility rates drop? Switch back to the utility with no penalty.
