PUC schedules local meeting on Sandy

Waterford – The Public Utilities Regulatory Authority PURA will host the final of three public hearings on the preparation and response of Connecticut's electric distribution and natural gas companies in restoring services after Storm Sandy at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 15 at town hall.

The previous meetings took place last week in East Haven and on Monday in Westport.

Gov. Malloy's Storm Legislation requires PURA to review utility company performance when more than 10 per cent of an electric distribution company's customers are without service for more than 48 consecutive hours, which was the case during Storm Sandy. The investigation will cover the Connecticut Light and Power, United Illuminating, and Connecticut Natural Gas Corp., Yankee Gas Services and The Southern Connecticut Gas Co.

Information on this investigation, Docket No. 12-11-07, including all documents and rulings, can be found here.

In addition to the public hearings, comment is also being accepted here and here, or by sending written comments to: Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority; Executive Secretary's Office; 10 Franklin Square; New Britain, CT 06051

At the conclusion of this investigation PURA may order specific remedies, compliance filings and orders. In addition, PURA may determine whether other sanctions are warranted.
