Mirror/AARP Google Hangout on choosing an electric supplier

Join us for our third Google Hangout as we have a conversation about state laws intended to help people weigh the risks and benefits of choosing a third-party electric supplier versus staying with the standard offer provided by your local utility, Eversource or United Illuminating. Shop carefully. Some retailers are offering rates cheaper than the standard offer, but they charge enrollment fees that can quickly exceed the modest savings.

In one Connecticut town, the high school football team also played a role. The hangout was sponsored by AARP Connecticut.
