“A Terrible Tragedy”–Ganim Applauds Penalties Against UI For Storm-Response Failures

Connecticut regulators levied the maximum allowed penalty of $30 million against Eversource Energy and another $2.1 million against United Illuminating which services Bridgeport for preparation failures and response gaffes to Tropical Storm Isaias last August.

Utilities can appeal to the Public Utilities Control Authority and Superior Court.

United Illuminating faces a total civil penalty of $2.1 million requiring $1.8 million returned to ratepayers and $360,000 to the state.

Mayor Joe Ganim calls the UI response “a terrible tragedy” in interview with News 12.
