CL&P: 'Vast Majority' of Customers Will Be Restored by Monday or Tuesday

Utility still had 250,000 customers without power on Thursday morning.

CL&P's projection for restoring the "vast majority" of its customers was "Monday or Tuesday," according to William Quinlan, a senior vice president for the utility.

"This is an estimate, it is not a guarantee," Quinlan said, adding that pockets of customers in particularly difficult areas would probably go beyond that date.

Quinlan said about 2 percent of customers would likely fall into that category.

The number of lineman being brought in from outside the company was expected to go from 1,080 on Wednesday to about 2,000 in the next several days, Quinlan said.

Of the thousands of "trouble spots" still left to repair, Quinlan said some of them involve trees on power lines but other — at least 1,000 — involve placing new poles.

"Our singular focus is on the 250,000 customers who remain without power," he said.

That is a pretty useless estimate. How about some information on which towns should expect power when? How about some information on how many crews are working in what towns? I understand that if I got an estimate for my street in West Hartford it would be just that, an estimate, but it would be a lot better than being lumped together with the whole state.

Agreed. This does not tell people how much longer they should expect to be without power - people in virtually any town in the state may have to do five or more days without power. You would think that CL&P could just finish the large number of towns with 1 or 2% outages.
