HARTFORD, CT (WCBS 880) - As many as 200,000 of the more than 800,000 Connecticut Light & Power customers who were without power following the freak October snowstorm were left in the dark for a week or more.

Those customers are eligible for rebates, according to CL&P spokesman Mitch Gross.

“We have $30 million that have been set aside by the parent company – Northeast Utilities – and that’s important to also point out this is not costing customers anything. This is company money,” Gross told WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau.

Gross says customers who were without power for at least a week are eligible for refunds of up to $200 – money that will be credited to their February bills.
