    After spending days restoring power to customers in Connecticut after Superstorm Sandy hit, Connecticut Light & Power is sending crews to New York and New Jersey to help restore power 

    “While restoration efforts are complete in Connecticut, and all affected CL&P customers who could be restored have been, many customers in New York and New Jersey remain without power, and electric companies there are in need of assistance,” CL&P said in a statement.

    Employees from CL&P and contractors who have been working in Connecticut will be headed to New York and New Jersey to support the ongoing Hurricane Sandy restoration effort.  Media is invited to witness the gathering and departing of these workers and interviews will be available.

    Crews plan to leave from CL&P’s headquarters in Berlin at 4:30 p.m.
