†Green energy plans are supported 100% by Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) that are purchased and retired in an amount sufficient to match your annual consumption. RECs are a tradeable, non-tangible energy commodity in the United States that represents proof that 1 megawatt-hour (MWh) of electricity was generated from an eligible renewable energy resource like biomass, hydro, solar or wind. Please see your Terms of Service for more information.

Licensed Electric Suppliers are required to post the highest and lowest generation service charge rate that was billed to their customers under a variable rate offer in each of the preceding 12 months. You can find this information on Direct Energy's website at https://www.directenergy.com/historical-pricing/ct_residential_past_variable_rates or on the supplier Rate Board that is maintained by the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority at https://www.energizect.com/compare-energy-suppliers.
