UIL Holdings Kicks Off A Series Of Meetings Tonight In Orange

UIL Holdings is taking its show on the road, starting Tuesday night in Orange.

The company, which operates The United Illuminating Co. and three natural gas utilities, is holding the meeting at the High Plains Community Center to help answer questions that customers may have about their energy bills, said James Torgerson, UIL’s president and chief executive officer.
