Governor Dannel P. Malloy said today -- Sunday, Nov. 6 -- that CL&P will not meet its self-identified goal of 99 percent power restoration in each city and town by midnight Sunday, Nov. 6, and released a document he asked CL&P for on Saturday, Nov. 5.
The document outlines updated town-by-town restoration times. This update will allow cities and towns across the state to more accurately plan for sheltering and warming centers, school schedules and give their residents more accurate restoration information.
Middlebury and Woodbury Power Restoration Projections
In Middlebury and Woodbury, CL&P is sticking to its 99 percent power restoration by 11:59 p.m. tonight - Sunday, Nov. 6.
One hundred percent restoration for Middlebury and Woodbury is projected for 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 8, according to CL&P.
"The closer we got to CL&P’s self-identified goal of 99 percent restoration in each city and town by midnight tonight, the more skeptical I became of their ability to meet that goal," said Malloy. "It’s now clear they are not going to meet their goal -- and I’ll have more to say about that at noon today [Sunday, Nov. 6]."
He said he released the information so municipalities can plan accordingly and residents can better make individual decisions on what to do during the coming days.
