CL&P to explain power delivery in Weston

power linesRepresentatives from Connecticut Light & Power (CL&P) are coming to Weston to let residents know how the electrical grid works and how, exactly, electricity is delivered to customers in town.

“We want people to know how the electrical circuits work,” said Weston First Selectman Gayle Weinstein. “The greater understanding people have, the less frustrating it should be for them when power does go out.”

Ms. Weinstein asked CL&P to come to town for an informational meeting after the nearly weeklong power outage in Weston following Superstorm Sandy at the end of October. A full 100% of CL&P’s Weston customers lost power during the storm.

As power slowly began to be restored, Ms. Weinstein said, many people had questions and concerns about why some areas got electricity back before others. “There was a lot of confusion and misinformation,” she said.

The CL&P presentation is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 8, at 10:30 a.m. in the Meeting Room at Weston Town Hall.

After a PowerPoint presentation, CL&P officials will be available to listen to comments and suggestions and to answer questions.

The meeting is open to all members of the public.
