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.READ MORE: Rain Leaks Into Rockefeller Center Station, Riders Call On MTA To Invest In Subway Station Upgrades
