This new partnership will set a new fixed price for electricity customers who participate in the Direct Choice program.


Direct Choice is a marketing agreement between Direct Energy and the city that allows residents and small businesses located in the city to lock in their electricity supply price for a specified period of time.

For the June 2012 through April 2013 billing cycles, Direct Choice customers in Bridgeport will pay $0.0729 per kWh for electricity (exclusive of utility charges and taxes). Senior citizens age 65 or older are eligible for a discounted price of $0.0719 per kWh. The Renewable Wind Energy Certificate Product will be $0.0779 per kWh. Furthermore, customers will receive a $25 Visa gift card when they successfully enroll in the program.

Smith, a native of Bridgeport, is the all-time leading scorer for the University of Connecticut mens’ basketball team with 2,145 points. Smith was an All-American high school basketball player at Kolbe Cathedral, where he currently serves as head coach of the school’s boys’ basketball team.
