Connecticut Commercial Electric Rate

The majority of Connecticut is serviced by the utility Connecticut Light & Power (CL&P). Customers who do not shop for competitive rates pay a default rate known as the General Service Rate (GSC).

Same Bill, Lower Rate

The GSC rate can be found on your CL&P bill under “Supplier Service Detail”. When you choose another electric supplier with a lower rate, you will still get the same bill from CL&P, with the lower rate replacing the default rate. The electric bill from CL&P will state your electric supplier underneath “Supplier Service Detail” followed by your KWh consumption and rate.

Through Connecticut energy choice laws businesses can shop for competitive commercial electricity rates. CL&P continues to deliver power to businesses and respond to power emergencies, however, they are no longer responsible for generating the power.
