In a presentation for an upcoming technical conference, United Illuminating listed under "Potential Solutions/Considerations" the following (among other considerations): "Evaluate 3rd party Supply options for LI [low income] customers"
Separately, AARP filed comments with PURA seeking to limit any retail supplier service to low-income customers to a guaranteed savings product
"AARP understands that many Connecticut customers are served by third party electric supplies. AARP supports reforms that would prevent any person who receives any energy assistance programs from enrolling third party electric supplier unless the rate offered is guaranteed to be below the utility standard service rate for the entirety of the contract. This will prevent scarce energy assistance dollars from being used to over-pay for electric service," AARP said
