HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Some Connecticut residents are going to see smaller electric bill starting next month.
Connecticut Light & Power residential customers are expected to see their monthly electric bills decline by nearly 7 percent stating in January, an average savings of more than $9 per month.
A spokesman for the state Department of Public Utility Control said Thursday the figures could change slightly when a final calculation is made in January.
The savings will vary for other customers, including businesses, schools and churches.
The rate drop is due to a sharp drop in wholesale electricity prices that CL&P pays to generators.
The rate decline would have been larger, but electric ratepayers
are being hit with a new state tax as of Jan. 1.
