Wallingford Expects Swift Power Restoration

The municipal electric department in Wallingford has often been held up as paragon of the way power providers should do business in storms and that hasn't changed in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.

Wallingford's emergency operations center is reporting that it expects electric service to be restored by midnight Wednesday to all of the 3,200 customers that were without power at the peak of the storm on Monday.

The Wallingford Electric Division began the day Tuesday with 1,270 outages or 5 percent of the utility's customers without power.That's down from 13 percent of customers without power at the height of the storm.

Officials expect to have outage levels in Wallingford reduced to 400 customers by 5 p.m. Tuesday.
