CL&P Alert to Homeowners Concerning Damaged Customer Equipment

As CL&P works to restore power across the state, homeowners should be aware that any damage to customer-owned equipment must be repaired by licensed, professional electricians before we can reconnect power lines to your home.

CL&P will repair all equipment leading to your home, including a service wire and connectors. Homeowners are responsible for repairing all other equipment attached to a residence, including a clevis (house knob), weatherheads, conduits, conductors and the meter box.  However, you are not responsible for damage to the meter.

If your home has sustained storm damage to customer-owned equipment, licensed electricians can be found through your local Yellow Pages or the State Department of Consumer Protection, Licensing Division, at www.ct.gov/dcp/site
