November 2004
Fairfield County Business Journal;11/29/2004, Vol. 43 Issue 48, p6
This article focuses on the problems discussed in the energy conference organized by the Connecticut Business & Industry Association recently in Cromwell. The political leaders and people from business and energy industries agreed that completing upgrades to Connecticut's outdated electricity transmission system needs to be taken care of as soon as possible. State policy-makers wrestled at length over how to complete the second phase of badly needed transmission line upgrades in the south, central and southwest parts of the state. Meanwhile, Connecticut energy consumers have paid more than $100 million per year in congestion charges in 2003 and 2004.
