Put simply: Fuck CL-P. Connecticut is far too business driven. Don't give them a dime; they are already subsidized.

We were without power for 7 days and 8 nights. They were ill prepared and neglectful in there service (or lack there of).

I requested a refund for all the food I lost from the storm and was told I did not qualify. What about all the years you weren't in the red, I haven't seen my bill go down. Poor planning and maintenance doesn't constitute a bailout from us, sorry you don't QUALIFY.

We had the usual spot on the line that causes us outages instantly, but never really repaired, to stop outages. We had power out both times, five days. We had to invest in genetator, gas for it, buy water, batteries, etc. We were never refunded from first storm. The problem took the crew literally, 15 minutes to fix, as ususal, no trees down, area was accessed, yet it took five days.

As a CT rate payer from a rural community, I have suffered outages for a number of years. I use a CPAP machine to ensure I can breathe at night (I have sleep apnia), but since we moved into our current home, we have lost power literally over a hundred times. In the past three years, I have had to spend hundreds of dollars for gas to power my generator. For them to now want to transfer the costs of their neglectful management to the rate payers is wrong.

Seems servicelevel has fell off considerably over past few years..more outages...longer wait times...no solid answers when I call

We have already paid for our own generator to protect from CL&Ps inefficiency. We should not have to pay twice.

I will not pay extra to cover the power company's storm "losses;" they should take responsibility for their losses as I do for mine.
