Letter: Electric rate increase is exorbitant

To the Editors:

As a senior couple living on a fixed income in an all-electric house for the past 30 years, we find CL&P’s proposed standard service rate increase of 25%, plus a 20% increase in the delivery rate, to be exorbitant considering the state of the economy and overall cost of living in Connecticut.

These rates are preposterous and totally incredible. We hereby petition the state regulators, PURA, to disapprove these incredibly unaffordable higher electricity rates.
