Connecticut's Public Utilities Regulatory Authority: Say NO to CL&P's Requested $462 Million Ratepayer Bailout of Storm Expenses

CL&P spent the better part of two decades reducing workforce and deferring maintenance in the name of greater profit margins. Connecticut suffered significant and lengthy power outages after a number of storms that crippled our economy and put our citizens at risk. The company communicated poorly, did not pay out of state crews promptly, and eventually apologized for their incompetent management.

Now they want the families and businesses of Connecticut to pay the bill for their neglect. They are petitioning state regulators to force ratepayers to pay for the damages caused by the storm.

By signing this petition you will let our state regulators know that we've had enough. A copy of each signature will be emailed to officials who will make this $400 million decision.  Help them understand that CL&P should pay for its negligence out of its profits - not our pockets.

This petition was delivered to:
  • Connecticut's Public Utilities Regulatory Authority
  • PURA Chairman
    Arthur House
  • PURA Vice Chairman
    Jack Betkoski
  • PURA Director
