BERLIN, Conn. (Oct. 31, 2017) – Eversource line and tree crews worked overnight Monday to restore power to customers. As of midday Tuesday, Eversource had restored power to more than 229,000 Connecticut customers.

“We’ve made tremendous progress and will continue working 24/7 until all customers have their power back on,” said Eversource Vice President of Electric Operations in Connecticut Michael Hayhurst. “The vast majority of customers in western and central Connecticut will have power restored by tomorrow evening. Given the significant damage in the southeastern part of the state, where we have to rebuild portions of the electric system, we expect power to be restored by Thursday at noon.”

More than 200 additional utility crews from as far as Florida, Ohio, Alabama and Tennessee are assisting. A convoy of close to 30 lineworker crews from New York arrived in Connecticut Tuesday afternoon with dozens of other crews expected to arrive in the state later Tuesday and Wednesday.

Customers can find a listing of estimated restoration times for their towns on For individual restoration information, customers can log into the Eversource website using their account information or call 800-286-2000.
