$U=0.27J$
Total energy stored $U$ can be determined as: $U=\frac{1}{2}CV^2$....................eq(1) Since the capacitors are connected in parallel, the equivalent capacitance $C$ is $C=C_1+C_2=2+4=6\mu F$ We then put the values in eq(1) and solve: $U=\frac{1}{2}({6\times10^{-6}}{)(300)}^2$ $U=0.27J$
