(c) The department, during the period commencing on January 1, 2011, and ending June 30, 2011, shall assess or cause to be assessed a charge per kilowatt hour of electricity sold to each end use customer of an electric distribution company and shall cause such assessments to be remitted to the General Fund. The department shall set such charge at a level which the department estimates will generate forty million dollars during the period it is assessed. Such charge shall not be assessed after [June 30, 2011] the effective date of this section. Any assessments collected but not yet remitted to the General Fund shall be refunded to each end use customer.

Sec. 502. (Effective from passage) Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 4-30a and 4-30b of the general statutes, after the accounts for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2011, are closed, if the Comptroller determines there exists an unappropriated surplus in the General Fund, the amount of any such surplus shall first be used for returning to any end use customer who made payments pursuant to subsection (c) of section 16-245f of the general statutes, as amended by this act, an amount equal to such payments, or, should such unappropriated surplus be less than such amount, such surplus shall first be used for returning to any such end use customer a pro rata share of such payments.
