Max Power – CL&P’s Art of Deception and Diversion

Posted in Bad Service List, Current Events, Expose and Investigative on November 7, 2011 by vk08

I just got off of seven, yes seven days in the dark and cold without electricity ( I was just informed that it was in actuality 8 days).  You may wonder why someone who lives in the state that pays the HIGHEST rates for power in the United States was without power for a full 7 days following a freak winter Nor’easter.  Well the answer is simple, and his name is Jeff Butler.  Mr Butler has a history of making up stories and well…. embellishing half truths to cover up for corporate stupidity.  Just look back 3 months during Hurricane Irene, and you’ll understand.

However, now that the power is coming back and stories from towns are coming out that crews were pulled from critical areas, that crews were sitting around doing nothing, that crews didn’t have a CLUE what they were supposed to be doing (and don’t get me wrong, the out of state people that came in are doing a superb job, they just haven’t been given good direction by CL&P) And reports form people that CL&P employees were laughing at the lack of power and telling people that they should be grateful that CL&P was even working on it, almost looking like they withheld power just to make a point that they were in charge and controlled it all.

What needs to happen now in very short order is simple.

1) We as a state need to get together and hold hearings and investigations into why CL&P was not on top of this from Day One, and took 3 days before they started restoration.

2) We as a state need to hold the Government responsible to follow through ont he promises to investigate, legislate and hold CL&P accountable.  Also to tell CL&P’s millions of dollars in funds to lobby for lenient sentences and regulations, that we will not be swayed by dollars in the pocket.

3) Make the shareholders and execs take a hit on this one, we ratepayers are sick and tired of having this burden placed upon us, just to have more shoddy service.

If we follow though and remember to NEVER FORGIVE AND NEVER FORGET, we may be able to effect change.
