Governor Lamont Statement on Ruling in Investigation of Utility Companies’ Response to Tropical Storm Isaias

(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Ned Lamont released the following statement in response to the decision released today by Connecticut’s Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) regarding the response to Tropical Storm Isaias by Eversource Energy and United Illuminating:

“PURA announced today what we have known since Tropical Storm Isaias hit our state last summer – Eversource and UI were not adequately prepared to serve their ratepayers to keep the lights and air conditioning on during a significant storm. Accountability is critical for all ratepayers across our state and that is what is happening now. Additionally, I am proud of the bipartisan bill that I signed into law following the storm to provide additional support to ratepayers and advance our commitment to a more resilient, reliable, and performance-based electricity system.”
