Connecticut Light & Power and United Illuminating have filed responses to an interrogatory in a Connecticut PURA proceeding concerning potential changes to the purchase of receivables mechanism, including the highest and average rates billed by retail electric suppliers
The EDCs were directed to provide the high, low, mean, and median monthly rates charged by each retail electric supplier through consolidated billing for supplier services to "residential" customers for each of the past two years. All data in this story refer to the interrogatory responses provided by the EDCs, which were limited to rates billed via UCB.
