Nearly one year later, Isaias looms large over CT utilities and their customers

Next month will mark the one-year anniversary of Tropical Storm Isaias battering Connecticut.

The storm, which came barreling up the coast and hit the state Aug. 4, 2020, left more than one million Connecticut residents without power for an extended period, some for more than week, in a sweltering summer during a pandemic.

The subsequent public outcry triggered some changes in the way regulators and state officials deal with state’s two largest electric distribution companies, The United Illuminating Co. and Eversource Energy.

Representatives of the two electric utilities say they have been busy addressing issues raised by state regulators and lawmakers over the past 11 months.
