In 1960, a group of Hartford Electric Light Company (HELCO) employees founded the credit union. In October of that year, Dutch Point Credit Union received its State Charter and began operations out of the HELCO office on Pearl Street, later transferring to Sheldon Street in Hartford. Our name was derived from the Hartford Dutch Point Power Plant constructed in 1904. Dutch Point began as a single-sponsor credit union to serve Eversource Energy (formerly Northeast Utilities) employees and family members, and all of its subsidiaries. Our membership charter was converted in 1989 to include additional Select Employer Groups, which grew to more than 200 companies. Today, we are a Connecticut credit union with more than 23,000 members and assets of $300 million. We are proud of the road we've traveled over the last half century, and we look forward to spending our future with you.
