UI Plans to Restore All Fairfield by Monday Night

UPDATE, 2 p.m.: As of 1:55 p.m., the number of outages in Fairfield is now up to 533. The increase from this morning is because crews needed to shut down some lines to safely work, according to United Illuminating.

FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Saturday’s snowstorm was worse than Irene across the state, but in terms of power returning for Fairfielders it’s turning out much better. United Illuminating reported that just Fairfield 498 customers still did not have power as of 11:25 a.m. Monday, just 2.25 percent of the town.

The company said it planned to have nearly all its customers  back up and running Monday night. “We are working directly with the towns to meet their priorities,” James P. Torgerson, chief executive officer of UIL Holdings, said in a press release. “We will continue to work diligently until all of our customers are back on.”

Some 8,751 residents in 17 towns served by United Illuminating were still without power. But the company said it returned power to 44,867 customers overnight Sunday.

The hardest hit town was Easton, which still had more than 35 percent of its homes without electricity. But United Illuminating still planned to restore power to “virtually all” its customers by Monday night. They will then dispatch their crews to help Connecticut Light & Power with its work in the rest of the state.
