Crews Working Round-the-Clock to Restore Power

FAIRFIELD COUNTY — No estimates were being given Monday morning on when power will be restored to the many Connecticut Light & Power customers in Fairfield County who lost power during and after Hurricane Irene. While some residents saw lights come back on Monday, crews are working around the clock to begin restoring power, CL&P says on its website.

"The damage from this storm was unprecedented and the restoration process may take a week or longer in some areas," says Jeff Butler, CL&P president and chief operating officer.

Crews from Canada, Florida, Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvannia, Tennessee, the Carolinas, Alabama, Michigan and Massachusetts will be helping restore power in Connecticut.

"In preparing for this hurricane, we were able to more than double the size of our workforce," Butler says. "Now that it is safe for our crews to be out, we're able to mobilize all of our available resources. At the same time, we continue trying to get additional crews to expedite our efforts."

Some 75 percent of the crews will be working during daylights while the remainder will be working during the night, Butler says.

The utility has set up a Hurricane Irene page on its website to provide more information. Customers can report outages on the site.
