Prosecutorial Staff of the Connecticut PURA, the Connecticut Office of Consumer Counsel, and Think Energy have entered into a settlement agreement under which Think Energy would pay a civil penalty of twenty-one thousand dollars ($21,000) to resolve alleged violations related to Historical Variable Rate (HVR) reporting requirements
Prosecutorial Staff had alleged that Think had: (i) submitted inaccurate HVR data and (ii) has
failed to submit HVR data in a timely basis on several occasions.
Think Energy issued the following statement concerning the settlement:
"While ENGIE Retail, LLC (d/b/a Think Energy) works to be fully compliant in all jurisdictions in which we sell electricity and natural gas, the Connecticut PURA prosecutorial unit identified a monthly report of variable rates for small commercial customers that was not filed for a period of time.
"Think Energy fully cooperated with the inquiry and the parties agreed to settle the matter, as outlined in the settlement agreement."
-- Think Energy statement
Think Energy will also institute a compliance plan related to HVR reporting

Parties as to the claims, or facts and circumstances surrounding the claims, or
