40 Percent of CL&P Customers Have Switched to a Retail Electricity Supplier

More and more electricity customers in Connecticut are discovering the benefits of switching to a retail electricity supplier.

Over 40 percent of residential customers that have their electricity delivered by Connecticut Lighting & Power (CL&P) now buy their electricity from a retail electricity supplier, according to the most recent data released by the utility. That’s 446,000 Connecticut homes that have already switched.

“Increasingly, electricity customers are switching their electricity supply from their utilities to retail suppliers as more people begin to understand the advantages of switching, which can include the ability to lock in lower electricity prices for extended periods,” said Jim Head, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Spark Energy. “More people are also aware of how electricity deregulation works in Connecticut— even though the utility will still deliver electricity to their homes, people can shop around and buy electricity from any retail electricity supplier they choose that services their area.”

Head said that now may be a good time for electricity customers to lock in electricity prices. “It’s always smart to shop around for a good deal, and smart shoppers across Connecticut are choosing Spark Energy,” said Head. “With summer prices coming soon, families everywhere could benefit from locking in a low fixed electricity price with a retail electricity supplier like Spark Energy.”
