Area lawmaker touts electricity consumer protection bill

A ranking member of the General Assembly’s Energy and Technology Committee is touting a bill that seeks to protect consumers from spikes in electric rates.  New Milford State Senator Clark Chapin co-introduced the bill that also looks to clear up confusion in the system.


In the past few months many electric customers have seen their monthly bills doubled and even tripled in some cases.  Chapin says customers were not warned about these price spikes, leaving families shocked and struggling to pay their bills.


The bill approved by the State moves on to the state House in the final days of the legislative session.  The bill, if signed into law, would require the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority to study the disclosure of electric supplier contract terms on electric customer bills and establish ways to better communicate with customers.
