Ridgefield, CT: August 12, 2020 12:30PM
Good Afternoon, this is First Selectman Rudy Marconi.
Ridgefield will be pursuing two major failings on the part of Eversource during this recent storm--their initial “make safe” response and their communications to our town. I will be meeting with U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal this afternoon to stress the failings of Eversource.
On the Board of Selectman agenda this evening is the approval to become a party to the PURA investigations into Eversource’s response to the storm.
Eversource is working hard to restore the remaining 1.7% of the outages by the end of the day today. Expect intermittent outages as restoration continues.
If you still have no power, call the office of emergency management at 203-431-2350 and Eversource at 800 286-2000.
In spite of extensive power restoration, there are many downed wires and much clean up to be done. Consider all downed wires live.
