NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut's utility regulators are investigating complaints that price spikes by some electric suppliers are nearly double what the two regulated utilities are charging.

The Public Utilities Regulatory Authority has scheduled four hearings to solicit public comment.

Regulators say they will clarify new supplier market rules and guidelines. Among topics under review are customer-switching practices, types of generation services, products such as fixed and variable rates, regulatory filing requirements, customer notices and disclosure requirements.

Regulators have scheduled hearings for Feb. 19 at Milford City Hall, Feb. 20 at the Farmington Community Senior Center, Feb. 24 at Brookfield Town Hall and Feb. 25 at Norwich City Hall.

The meetings are set to begin at 6:30 p.m.

Attorney General George Jepsen and Consumer Counsel Elin Swanson Katz have said thousands of customers complained they are being overcharged.
