Connecticut 3rd Highest Electric Rate Nationwide.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) “Electric Power Monthly” reports released last month for May 2014 shows that Connecticut has the third highest residential electric rate nationwide at an average of 20.18 cents per Kilowatt hour. In contrast Washington State has the lowest rate at 8.93 cents per Kilowatt hour.

2014 Average Electric Rates

Year to year New England has had the highest price hike of 11.31% and the Pacific Contiguous (California, Oregon, Washington) has had the lowest increase of 1.69%.

Out of the end-use sectors residential, commercial, industrial and transportation the residential sector accounts for the majority of sales and still pays the most cents per Kilowatt hour for electricity.

Hi David.  We are so dependent on our energy needs from outside the region.

David, I used to think that Alabama was high, but just went on line and saw that we were #26 in 2011, but according to your 2014 chart we are now #21...we are improving.

HI David - and it's going to go up even more!  CL&P sent out a notice that they are increasing rates (possibly twice) in the next year to cover the storm clean-up costs from 2011.  The truth is that they had been neglecting the lines and line clearances for years yet still charging these high rates.

By the way, it is interesting that 2 of the top 4 highest rate states are not even part of the contiguous 48 states.

I wonder why their rates are so high in that area. My sister has notice that her bill has actually gone down over the last couple months. It might be because she had a couple kids move out off to college but I wonder if her rate has actually gone down.
