AARP Connecticut Urges Lawmakers to Expand Access to Energy Assistance During State’s Special Session
AARP Connecticut is very concerned about the health and safety of state residents as we enter the winter months. Many of our members are on moderate, low, or fixed incomes, and they are being hit hard by inflation and the ongoing economic impacts of the pandemic.
Thousands of Connecticut Ratepayers Sign Petition Opposing Aquarion Water Company Rate Increase Request
AARP Connecticut submitted to the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) the names of nearly 2,400 Connecticut residents who signed a petition that opposes the Aquarion Water Company’s request to implement a rate increase that will raise the cost of water for Connecticut ratepayers by nearly 25% over three years.
As temperatures rise and Connecticut residents rely heavily on air conditioning in their homes, AARP Connecticut seeks to educate consumers on how to prepare for, and protect against, the increasing costs of electricity and other utility expenses.
AARP’s mission is to empower people to choose how they live as they age, and an important part of choosing how we live as we age is being able to choose where we live as we age. Most older adults want to remain in their own home and community as they age, but financial barriers and limited service options can make this difficult. We were pleased that the Connecticut legislature passed a state budget and several pieces of legislation that will support older adults who wish to age in place.
AARP Connecticut State Director Nora Duncan provided the following statement in response to the state budget passed by the Connecticut General Assembly and expected to be signed by Governor Lamont:
