Conn. public hearings on Superstorm Sandy planned

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The first of three hearings along the Connecticut shoreline is planned to gauge from the public how well the electric and gas companies restored service following Superstorm Sandy.

The Public Utilities Regulatory Authority has scheduled the first hearing for Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the East Haven senior center.

Other hearings are planned for next Monday at Westport Town Hall and Jan. 15 at Waterford Town Hall.

State law requires PURA to review utility company performance when 10 percent or more of an electric distribution firm's customers are without service for more than 48 consecutive hours, as in the case of Superstorm Sandy, which hit Connecticut in October.

PURA's investigation will cover the state's two major electric distribution companies and three natural gas companies.
