CL&P Helps Keep Connecticut Residents Warm this Winter
Company partners with Operation Fuel on energy assistance

BERLIN, Conn. (January 15, 2013) – New England’s cold winter months can be tough, leaving some families struggling to make ends meet. To help make times easier, CL&P is partnering with Operation Fuel to support the non-profit’s energy assistance programs. Through March 31, CL&P will donate $1 to Operation Fuel for every customer who enrolls in the company’s paperless billing option.

“This is a great opportunity for our customers to help their neighbors in need, while enjoying the advantages of paperless billing,” said Penni Conner, Chief Customer Officer for Northeast Utilities, parent company of CL&P. “E-billing is quick and easy, and even sends an email alert with your bill amount and due date, so you won’t need the paper bill to remind you.”

To enroll in eBilling, visit www.cl-p.com and click on the “Paperless eBilling” graphic. Upon enrolling, customers have 24-hour access to their online account which protects their personal information with a secure log-in.

Customers can also make a difference for those in need all year long by signing up for the Add-a-Dollar program that automatically adds $1 each month to their CL&P bill to benefit Operation Fuel. Operation Fuel provides one-time energy assistance to low income customers who need help paying their energy bills but aren’t eligible for state or federal assistance.

Connecticut Light & Power (CL&P), a Northeast Utilities company (NYSE: NU), transmits and delivers electricity to 1.2 million customers in 149 cities and towns.
