  1. Connecticut utility plans major restructuring

    After a disastrous snow storm knocked out power for hundreds of thousands of Connecticut residents, the largest of the state's utility companies has set about restructuring its operations, according to The New Canaan Advertiser.  Connecticut Light and Power spent weeks repairing power lines knocked down in the late October snow storm, with some new customers put on hold until mid-November. The unusually early snow was exacerbated by the unseasonably warm fall, which left many trees still sporting most of their leaves when the storm hit. On November 17, the company's president and chief operating officer Jeffrey Butler tendered his resignation over the crisis, at least in part at the behest of state regulators, according to The New York Times.  James Muntz, president of transmission at CL&P's parent company, North Utilities, will take his place temporarily as the company searches for a permanent replacement. But that only represents a portion of the firm's restructuring. The company also plans to create vice president positions responsible for emergency preparedness and infrastructure hardening.  These moves, however, will not preclude a state investigation of the company's structure.
