In CT, Emails Reveal Details of October Storm Aftermath

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

A group of emails has shed some light on the dispute over compensating Connecticut utility customers who lost power for a week or more after the October snow storm.

One of the emails released in response to a Freedom of Information request by The Associated Press said Northeast Utility's initial $10 million offer would amount to $3 per customer per day — or the utility said customers could get $15 per day if distributed differently.

An adviser to Governor Dannel Malloy's administration told officials that either amount would be quote "politically laughable." The utility tripled the offer to $30 million on November 29, 20 days after power was fully restored.
