The Connecticut PURA has issued interrogatories to Connecticut Light & Power and United Illuminating directing the utilities to, "Provide a list of suppliers and the number of residential accounts currently identified as being served under a variable rate for each supplier."
The interrogatories were issued in Docket No. 18-04-25 - PURA Investigation Regarding Issues Related to Uncollectible Accounts
Docket No. 18-04-25 has seen certain stakeholders, such as OCC, raise the issue of the utilities' purchase of receivables programs as a driver of utility uncollectibles
Although suppliers are prohibited from enrolling residential customers onto new variable rate products in Connecticut, suppliers are permitted to continue serving, with a variable rate, customers who were on a variable rate plan at the time the state's variable rate ban was enacted.
