FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Connecticut Light & Power is seeking to raise electricity rates by 5.9 percent, mostly to fix utility poles, wires and other parts of an aging electrical grid, according to the Hartford Courant.
The average customer using 700 kilowatt hours a month would pay $6.76 more in monthly charges, the story said.
CL&P has an operating deficiency of $117 million for capital investments in infrastructure needed to improve reliability and service to customers.
