NBC Connecticut Troubleshooters has been investigating problems with Connecticut's competitive electricity market. As part of their coverage, they highlight legislation currently being considered by state lawmakers that could result in 880,000 customers of CL&P and UI having their electricity supplier switched to another company without their consent. AARP is strongly opposed to this legislation because it could result in higher electricity rates for all Connecticut residential customers in the future.

Connecticut voters age 50+ overwhelmingly oppose recent electric utility proposals being considered by state lawmakers that would deny 800,000 customers a choice of affordable electricity plans and drive up rates for seniors and families.
