Eversource business and residential customers across Connecticut continue to report receiving unsolicited phone calls and home visits from individuals selling “discounted power” and claiming to be “representatives” or “partners” of Eversource. In light of this, the company is warning customers that these individuals are not affiliated with Eversource and are most likely either scammers or third-party suppliers choosing to use deceptive marketing tactics.
“If you’re receiving phone calls from someone saying they’re a ‘representative’ of Eversource and offering to sell you discounted power, this is not us. We are a regulated delivery company and don't market electricity supply to our customers,” said Penni Conner, Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Officer at Eversource. “Though electricity customers in Connecticut do have the option of choosing a competitive energy supplier, and most competitive suppliers do follow the rules, we urge customers to do their due diligence and check the validity of any company or offer being made.”
