NEW CANAAN Conn. – While nearly 4,200 New Canaan customers remained without power Sunday morning, Connecticut Light & Power is making it easier to find out when power will be restored to the area. 

An estimated 4,198 of 8,375 customers in New Canaan were without power at 5:30 a.m. Sunday according to Connecticut Light & Power reports.  However, CL&P launched a “Restoration Estimates” web page at www.cl-p.com/restorationtimes to provide customers with estimated restoration times for repairs in their specific area. Customers can also call 800-286-2000 for the status of their outage. In previous statements, CL&P officials said they expected to have most power restored to customers by Tuesday

More than 53,000 customers out of 1,240,246 total customers served by CL&P were out of power across Connecticut as of 5:30 a.m. Sunday, down from more than 106,000 customers Saturday morning.

Hundreds of thousands of customers have had power restored by CL&P since Hurricane Sandy hit Monday, according to a release. The massive restoration effort will include replacing more than 800 utility polls and restringing 78 miles of overhead electrical cable – enough cable to stretch from Norwalk to New London.

More than 7,000 storm responders from across the country have now joined the company in its efforts, according to a release.
