State Representatives Themis Klarides (R-114), Charles Ferraro (R-117) & Pam Staneski (R-119) hosted an informational workshop for Orange residents about lowering your electric bill at the Orange Senior Center, September 8.
The workshop ‘Learn How to Lower Your Electric Bill’ included presentations by electric rate specialists from Connecticut’s Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA).
More than 30 Orange interested residents were in attendance for the workshop.
Rep. Klarides said, “It is more important now than ever for consumers to search out ways to cut their monthly utility bills tapping into the competitive markets that exist. These community forums we believe will help them do that.’’
“This was a wonderful event to provide useful information to Orange constituents and electric ratepayers regarding their monthly billing statement,” said Rep. Staneski. “Everyone I talked to were very thankful for holding the workshop.”
Rep. Ferraro said, “The aim of the workshop was to empower electric consumers with the additional information which would help them make an informed decision about their generation supply rates and whether to choose a licensed supplier or remain with their current standard service generation supply, United Illuminating.”
The Orange Legislative Delegation had rate specialists from Connecticut’s Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) come down to the Orange Senior Center and guide residents through the process of reading and understanding their electric bill.
