Remember when CL&P kept promising 99 percent restoration of power in the days after the great October snowstorm in 2011?
Attorney General George Jepsen has asked the Public Utility Regulatory Authority to levy fines against the power giant because
… the company impeded the state regulatory authority’s ability to fully investigate the storm restoration efforts after the October Nor’easter in 2011 by failing to completely disclose important information during last year’s storm response investigation.
“As the restoration from the October Nor’easter proceeded, CL&P committed to the Governor, municipal officials and its customers that it would restore 99 percent of all homes and businesses in each town it served by midnight on Nov. 6 … The documents produced are relevant to whether the Nov. 6 restoration projection was reasonable and whether CL&P knew that estimate was attainable.”
One of those documents released by Jepsen today is an email that calls estimates for power restoration in the Farmington Valley “a work of fiction.”
