  • In the final days of the 2011 legislative session, and with broad bipartisan support, the General Assembly passed Senate Bill 1243, An Act Concerning the Establishment of the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and Planning for Connecticut's Energy Future. The bill effects a comprehensive overhaul in the state's energy policy, its method of energy procurement, and the way that its utilities are regulated. As of this writing, the bill is still awaiting the governor's signature, but it is expected in the coming days.
