Connecticut Light & Power Steps Up Communications Efforts With Towns

Having been stung with criticisms in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Irene, Connecticut Light & Power is looking to do a better job keeping municipal officials in the 149 communities it serves informed about power restoration efforts.

Jeff Butler, CL&P's president and chief operating officer, said starting Monday, the utility will provide out daily briefings to municipal leaders about work that is specific to their communities.

CL&P has also made good on other promises that it made in the aftermath of Irene, said Mitch Gross, a spokesman for the utility.

It has assigned at least one crew to the vast majority of towns without power as as result of the storm, Gross said, with a primary focus of working with officials to address emergency situations as well a facilitate the reopening of municipal roads. The utility has provided a liaison to every community that has requested one, he said.
