Malloy: CL&P Will Not Meet Its 99 Percent Goal

Governor Dannel P. Malloy released updated power restoration information requested from CL&P.

Governor Dannel P. Malloy said today -- Sunday, Nov. 6 -- that CL&P will not meet its self-identified goal of 99 percent power restoration in each city and town by midnight Sunday, Nov. 6, and released a document he asked CL&P for on Saturday, Nov. 5.

The document outlines updated town-by-town restoration times. This update will allow cities and towns across the state to more accurately plan for sheltering and warming centers, school schedules and give their residents more accurate restoration information.

Middlebury and Woodbury Power Restoration Projections

In Middlebury and Woodbury, CL&P is sticking to its 99 percent power restoration by 11:59 p.m. tonight - Sunday, Nov. 6.

One hundred percent restoration for Middlebury and Woodbury is projected for 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 8, according to CL&P.

"The closer we got to CL&P’s self-identified goal of 99 percent restoration in each city and town by midnight tonight, the more skeptical I became of their ability to meet that goal," said Malloy. "It’s now clear they are not going to meet their goal -- and I’ll have more to say about that at noon today [Sunday, Nov. 6]."

He said he released the information so municipalities can plan accordingly and residents can better make individual decisions on what to do during the coming days.

The goal would have been easier to meet if CL&P had kept up with thier tree trimming program. Many outages would have been prevented so the rest of the people would have had thier power restored earlier. I dont care if it costs them 100Mil, because preventative work is always cheaper in the long run then reactive. care. They made this worse than it had to be and now they want to pass the cost along to us when thier bad decisions compounded the issues.

Several Connecticut Residents have expressed interest in starting a petition to our state and federal representatives regarding CL&P's failures. If interested, please join the campaign by adding your signature to the petition and by passing it along to others as well. http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/actionagainstconnlightandpower/
