Save on Electricity Costs and Help Labor Assist Working Families in Distress and GrowJobs in Connecticut
The Union Energy Alliance has selected Twain River Energy and Perigee Energy to run the UEA electric power program available exclusively to union members, their families and friends. The Program is offering the lowest 12 month fixed residential rates available in Connecticut right now:
7.299 cents per kilowatt hour -- compared to the CL&P rate of 7.615 and the UI Rate of 7.697 cents per kWh.
You could save up to one hundred dollars or more over the course of the next year with the UEA rate.
Sign up now, to lock in the fixed rate, with no entry, exit fees, or early withdrawal penalties.
You will also be helping in a big way with two organizations that serve working families across the state:
The John Driscoll United Labor Agency -- helps working families in distress, on issues ranging from job loss and financial crisis to substance abuse recovery.
GrowJobsCT -- Works with labor, business and community organizations to preserve and expand manufacturing jobs in our state.
We are endorsed by the Connecticut AFL-CIO, and work in partnership with professional, community-oriented energy providers; Twain River Energy and Perigee Energy. Your bill still comes from your current utility, and they continue to provide all service to the lines.
