CL&P: Customers in Southeastern Connecticut Won't See Power Restoration for 24 Hours or More

Mitch Gross said access to roadways to make repairs and the coordination of that effort is the issue.


Following a routine call to Mitch Gross, CL&P Spokesman, Patch learned that customers in southeastern Connecticut without power can expect to be that way for 24 hours or more.

“You are the first one -- I’m telling; this just came out. Some sections of Southeastern Connecticut may not have power for 24 hours or longer. The amount of work that needs to be done and the (issue of) access to get to that work, is the problem. Roads must be opened so we can get in and assess damage," Gross said.

Ledyard has 1,465 CL&P customers without power.

Montville, Stonington, Ledyard Old Lyme, Lyme, Groton, Waterford, and New London are included in the towns subject to extended outage periods.

Where are the plow trucks? The town should get contractors and get rid of the town workers and the job would be done by now because they would not have to deal with the town unions.

you may be pointing a finger in the wrong direction.....could be the town does not want to pay overtime.....the other priority......ur street and mine may be low on a list.....
