CL&P study: Storm response was “reasonable”

Davies Consulting has completed a  report on the two major power outages that swept through Connecticut and the Northeast in 2011. The report, prepared for Connecticut Light & Power Co., found its power restoration efforts were “reasonable” compared with industry norms.

A team of consultants spearheaded the project, completing a strategic analysis of CL&P’s power restoration performance and emergency response to Hurricane Irene and the subsequent Halloween Nor’easter. Both storms left thousands powerless for weeks and caused a political furor in Connecticut.

Following extensive post-storm analysis on causes, the company focused its efforts on steps necessary for CL&P, Northeast Utilities and state and local emergency officials to better prepare and handle future emergency storm situations and outages.

The entire report can be found here.
