CTVV: PURA, a leading Connecticut gatekeeper

Print More
PURA, the Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority, is a three-member quasi-judicial body that oversees and regulates the state’s electricity, natural gas, water and telecommunications companies. This agency has significant responsibility for monitoring industries that economically impact virtually 100 percent of the state’s citizens, private and public commercial enterprises, as well as municipal budgets.
Michael Caron, a commissioner for PURA since his appointment in 2012 by Governor Malloy, has a deep-bench resume well suited to meeting the goals and challenges established for his office and staff.
Susan Regan, host of CT Valley Views, conducts an informative interview with Caron, identifying the PURA’s key role in protecting Conn.’s residents, parameters of jurisdiction and current legislative objectives.
