Groton Power Outage Update: Power Restored by Groton Utilities; CL&P Fixing High Voltage Lines

About 3,000 in CL&P cutomers remain without power; company working on high voltage line that serves Mystic and Noank.

Connecticut Light & Power made progress overnight restoring high voltage lines that will ultimately return power to homes and businesses, Groton’s Director of Emergency Management said today.

The utility reported 3,072 of customers in Groton still without power as of noon.

Emergency Managment Director Joseph Sastre said two of the four main circuits that serve parts of Groton have been restored; the company is working today on the circuit that runs from Mystic into Noank.

CL&P has three different crews in town at the moment; one is connecting downed lines to homes, one is repairing smaller circuits and a third restoring high voltage lines.

Groton Utilities reported as of 10 a.m., all power had been restored to its customers that was lost as the result of Hurricane Sandy. However, there may be individual issues, Sastre said.

If you use Groton Utilities but do not have power, call the company at (860) 446-4000.
