Utility companies are likely to increase electric rates this winter, as their rates cycle every six months, but third-party suppliers offer more affordable solutions to consumers. By visiting www.energizect.com, you can look into third-party suppliers and lock in lower rates now before winter price increases go into effect. Additionally, the Connecticut Energy Assistance Program continues to accept applications!

Based on their household income, or receipt of a public assistance benefit, they may be eligible for a 10% or 50% discount off their electric bill per month.

The American Red Cross is reporting a severe blood shortage and is seeking donations from anyone able to help. Since August, the national blood supply has dropped nearly 25%, potentially threatening the medical care of patients with emergency need for blood, or those with critical conditions who depend on blood transfusion. Worsening climate disasters have also strained the blood supply, leading to blood drives being canceled and blood and platelet donations being reduced in impacted areas. Donors of all types are urgently needed and there is emergency need for platelet donors and type-O blood donors to ensure critical care can continue. Head to www.redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-REDCROSS for a local blood drive or donation center.

Important update! The Department of Labor recently announced that it became aware of a new phishing scheme by criminals posing as Department of Labor staff to obtain detailed information from employers participating in the state’s Registered Apprenticeship Programs. They will send an email appearing to be from the Department of Labor, but from a random email address, asking for employers’ personal information. If employers receive that email, they are asked to send the item to junk mail and block the sender. Below is an example of what one of those scam emails may look like.
