For immediate release                                                           
FRIDAY, JANUARY 11, 2013 
HARTFORD - Attorney General George Jepsen today released the following 
statement on United Illuminating's notice of intent to file an application for 
a rate increase, which was filed with the state Public Utilities Regulatory 
Authority (PURA) this afternoon: 
"Connecticut's electric rates remain extremely high. Any and every proposal to 
increase those rates must be thoroughly scrutinized. My office will participate 
in this proceeding, and I will urge PURA to approve rates that are no more than 
just and reasonable, as required by law. 
"While I understand the need to upgrade infrastructure and resiliency following 
the major storms our state has experienced, every proposed expense must be - 
and will be - carefully reviewed and evaluated."
