Connecticut Energy Co-op Ceases Operations

August 2002 - The Connecticut Department of Public Utility Control announced that the Connecticut Energy Cooperative has ceased operations and is turning back its 11,000 electric customers, including its green power customers, to their default electricity suppliers. In an August 22 article in the Hartford Courant, sources attribute the co-op's problems to a combination of low standard-offer prices and a general lack of knowledge of electricity restructuring among the state's electricity customers. The departure of the co-op leaves Green Mountain Energy Company as the sole green power marketer in the state.
