Natural gas customers of Norwich Public Utilities (NPU) will see a reduction in their monthly bills as a result of a provision in the recently approved state budget that exempts the utility from the state’s gross receipts tax.
Inflation is impacting every part of daily life and every industry in the global economy. From grocery stores and gas stations to restaurants and car dealerships, the price of just about everything is increasing.
Summer is a great time to enjoy the outdoors, stay active and have fun. Make sure you take steps to avoid illness or injury this year: Avoid heat exhaustion or heat stroke by staying hydrated, wear loose, lightweight clothing, and avoid spending time outdoors during the hottest part of the day (11 a.m. to 3 p.m.).
NPU is working with TRC Companies to perform safety inspections on our natural gas meters in your neighborhood, as required by the State of Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA). This is a mandatory safety inspection that only takes a few minutes to perform. Gas services that cannot be inspected as part of this survey must be turned off per state regulation.
NPU, as a member of the American Public Power Association (APPA) recently participated in the Light Up Navajo project, a combined effort between the Navajo Tribal Utility Authority (NTUA) and the APPA to bring electricity to approximately 14,000 homes within the 27,000-square-mile Navajo Nation. These homes represent 75 percent of all U.S. households that do not have power.
